Our American Indian traditions are a dynamic, living experience and these workshops continue to nurture and they are made a part of the lifelong memories that are added to the tribal memory of the American Indian children. We are following in the paths of wisdom taught by our American Indian Elders and ancestors. These children will tell their children how things were when they were young. The continuity of culture and tribal tradition of will restore the hoop of the world, for all the people. We, as individuals, always need to remember, it is not about us, and it is for the children!
