2019 Native American Critical Issues Conference
Date: March 7-9, 2019
Location: West Bay Beach Holiday Inn Resort in Traverse City, Michigan
Theme: Air – The Sacred Breath of Life
We originate from the sacred breath of the Creator, an expression of the first thought. As we breathe in the smoke from the pipe and exhale, our prayers are carried on eagle feathers as they fly into the air and touch the rest of creation. Our Native languages carry our cultural values and traditions from generation to generation. As Indigenous peoples, we have a responsibility to revitalize Native languages and protect Mother Earth so future generations will be able to hear and understand the voices of our ancestors. It is our duty to help heal the wounds caused by humans including those that have damaged the sky world. Our thoughts, narratives and our practices in traditional and scientific endeavors should be aligned with this theme to restore Mother Earth in order to provide for future generations.
