Given historical trauma experienced by Native Peoples, often invisible to society, our program strengthens youth and Elder relationships through cultural arts mediums and heritage. We invite Elders to mentor K-14 youth on artistic practices. Our goals are to enhance presence while imparting knowledge, to bridge understanding and establish trusting places for building identity, to heal and be seen. Activities include leadership summits, powwows, parades, art shows, and cross-cultural exchanges.
