Explore tribal cultures with the National Museum of American Indians

If you are looking for a new resource to use with your Club members, check out the National Museum of American Indians (NMAI). It is the home to a number of great sources that includes a Seminar and Symposia Program, an annotated Index of Resources, classroom lessons that can be used in your Club, and much more.

Now where to start? If the investigation, discussion, and understanding of Native communities intrigue you, the Seminars and Symposia Program and Archive is the spot for you. Through the Seminars and Symposia Program, the museum promotes meaningful study, discussion, and civic engagement, providing a national forum for historical and contemporary topics of concern and interest to Native peoples and the general public. The program will develop and host public forums, ranging from intimate roundtable discussions to seminars that are webcast around the world. What an opportunity!


The Fuel That Helps Us Rise

The music video WE SHALL REMAIN, directed and produced by the Los Angeles-based the StyleHorse Collective, is a poignant portrayal of Natives working together to rise about the effects of historical trauma their communities have suffered for years. The video tells the story of a young Native girl wanting to understand why her community and family have struggled. Her uncle explains her people’s history but reminds her that her cultural traditions can be used to rise above and succeed.

This is perhaps best stated when the uncle tells his niece:

“Untended wounds are at the core of much of the self-inflicted pain experienced in Native America. Much like fire, this pain can either be devastatingly destructive or wisely harnessed to become fuel that helps us to rise up and move forward in life with joy, purpose and dignity.”

Filmed on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation in Idaho, the StyleHorse Collective used students attending the 2014 Northwest UNITY Youth Conference for the video. WE SHALL REMAIN delivers its message powerfully with music written and produced by The StyleHorse Collective; vocals provided by The Wakan Sisters (Billie Kennedy, Dani Kennedy and Katt Jefferson) and CeCe Curtis-Cook; and its story delivered in rhyming prose.
