Members were impressed by a video presentation by the young people. Their film integrated the seven sacred teachings and creative answers to the talking circle questions. They also performed an original song that had been written and arranged by several group members.

“I am so proud,” said one memory keeper. “It’s another sign of maturity for our people. They’re growing and feeling confident in their identity.”

Memory keepers celebrated the fact that this Sacred Circle is feeling more like a family, with more children and teenagers here than before.
