Native educators and youth organizers will be guiding the design and implementation of experiential education programs. Elders and youth in council working to preserve culture, sacred sites and our indigenous languages through songs have been laying a foundation for intergenerational programming. Sacred Water and Land: Youth Education and Empowerment is a way for the youth to connect to our sacred sites in the ways our ancestors taught us by the offering of ourselves, acknowledging the spirits of the land, allowing the youth to hear the stories and teachings of the elders and knowledge keepers of these sites. The youth will learn original instructions on how we are to care for all creation and document their family histories. They will be mentored in a space where they can cultivate critical consciousness that enables them to deconstruct problems and offer culturally-rooted solutions. This will stimulate family tree conversations at home and also remind them of our responsibility to all life in their own terms. . Read More
The Peace and Dignity Journey is part of a larger inter-continental prayer from Alaska to Panama. This prayer to connect all of our peoples and build a larger communication and culture-sharing that has greatly contributed to the unity of Native peoples in Texas. In 1990, over 200 representatives of Indigenous nations from throughout the western hemisphere met for the first time in Quito, Ecuador. The inspiration of spiritual running to re-unite the nations of turtle island was inspired by the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. Elders from North, Central and South America remember and talk about a prophecy that foretold how we will come together and reunite as one… “we are like a body that was broken up into pieces and this body will come back together to be whole again.” Through the Peace & Dignity Journeys, numerous and diverse indigenous nations reunite and reclaim dignity for their families and communities.
