    So important to learn off our elders, family and community traditions, so that our past is not lost forever. I wish you all well. Thankyou for the insight.

    good to hear that the young are interested in their heritage and truly want to learn the ways and traditions. Not many young in the world want to learn history let alone their own heritage.

    I am non-native but when I go to our Six Nations Chieftans Pow-wow, I feel peace, and healing when I go home. Aboriginal teachings must exist for future generations and for the healing of our Mother Earth and it's people. Sago
