  • This video is a special message to youth, based on the poem of Salutation, an oral tribute of respect and homage to our Elders. The need for healing between native and non-native communities is addressed in this work. Traditionally, it is the Elders that assist the individual, the family and the community emotionally, physically and spiritually.
    Despite residential schools and legislated outlawing of cultural knowledge, our Elders have endured. Suffering through racism and pain they retain what they had been given and taught by their Elders. Native culture was never "dead", it was kept alive in the quiet whispers of the Elders.
