My message would be, whenever possible, to try to read and study
the true histories, because the history that I have been taught is
the false history of our people. I'm very fortunate that I
am beginning to understand what the true history of our people
really is, and my message to the young people is: study hard,
do the research,
and it wont be long before you obtain the information that you
require. You become teachers yourselves. You have the energies,
and the time to begin the research and the studies that we need, and we need
so much of your youthful energies to go where we need to go, where
our ancestors want us to go.
In the words of the Indigenous peoples of the world, when they
met in South America a few years ago they brought out the vision
statement, “We will walk into the future in the footsteps of
our ancestors,” and that is my wish to the young people of
North America who are Indigenous.
