Testimonials

" It is through these teachings of our cultural ways that our language, history, song, dance and ceremonies will stay alive through our young people."

Since the beautiful ceremony of the Isnati for our young women, I have been meaning to express myself in person but it seems that I never get the opportunity.


It is very important that our children experience and retain our Way of Life as was handed down to us from our Elders generations ago. It is through these teachings of our cultural ways that our Language, History, Song, Dance and Ceremonies will stay alive through our young people.


It is with utmost respect in your endeavors for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the beautiful Isnati ceremony. Thanking you with all sincerity.

Le Miye,
