"The greatest challenge for Native people in the 21st century is to remember we are the children of Prophets, Warriors, Dreamers and Healers and the power we reclaim has little to do with profits or losses, anger or victimization or any of the other false choices presented to us. Our power lies within our languages, cultures, sacred ways and children’s spirits. All else is distraction."__Fvs Hvtke Cvpko
