Grounded: Honoring Our Cultural Ties With Strength and Resilience
Showing in the South Gallery April 21, 2023 through October 16, 2023
Many of our Native families strive to compete with the western way of surviving. We send our children to schools and colleges outside of our communities with the hopes that they can earn a living to support themselves economically. We want them to return and continue our traditional culture at the same time so that it doesn’t die or fade away. There is a constant battle, so to speak, between the two different survival perspectives that our next generation faces. We continue to stay grounded in the places we live outside of our communities by various means for the future of our Native youth.
