AIANTA: There is still time to give in 2017

il

Native American communities are working hard to ensure the next generation holds their culture in their hearts and in their hands. Tribal Elders are teaching the next generation the ways of their ancestors. 
 
Indigenous Nations in traditional habitats have stewardship over some of America’s last best places.  Their cultures, which preserve these places, provide us with important ingredients for a land ethic sorely needed by the modern world.  Tourism in their homelands open our eyes to long-forgotten environmental values needed by every civilization.  It becomes a bridge between cultures that reveals a treasure trove of indigenous wisdom.  It allows us to see first-hand the need to preserve both indigenous habitat in the natural world and cultures that arise from Native soil.  Everyone’s future depends on it.
