It is their hope to educate those within and outside of the Indigenous Community. To provide support to our Indigenous People. To be a voice to advocate for the youth of the Indigenous Community to help encourage, and strengthen the next Seven Generations and Beyond.
Our Philosophy is made up of three main components: 1. We are all unique individuals who deserve to have our voices heard! 2. Together we can accomplish anything! 3. Our Fire, Our Spirit Within Each of Us… Yukwatsistay^!
In our language there is no word to say inferior or superiority or equality because we are all equal...
