Members gathered in their talking circles for the first time today. One memory keeper described how this felt:

“When we are in the circle, I like listening to what’s happened. It’s still the same things that we are going through in our communities. We’re not rich, but rich in the spirit. It’s the same stories, what we’re going through with our youth, addictions, suicide, young people in jail. Everything they’re going through I’m going through too. But we’re still going. No one’s giving up. We’re still going.”
