Bright Futures, Bold Traditions
Native nations have safeguarded their homelands and cultural traditions since time immemorial. The continuity of these traditions in the face of extreme adversity and foreign, federal and state policies that sought to eradicate our people and cultures tells the world that “we are still here.” The vitality of our efforts in cultural revitalization is a form of resistance. Our people did not merely “survive,” we “thrive,” and the cultural values and traditions that enabled that survival continue to guide us in our daily lives and hopes for the future. The theme of this year’s For All My Relations Conference is “Bright Futures, Bold Traditions.” We can look around us and see how cultural traditions have connected us to our past and guide our futures. Each one of us contributes to the resiliency of our cultures and communities. Write an essay illustrating how you or a member of your family or community demonstrates the “Bright Futures and Bold Traditions” of tribal communities.
