Mission

Honoring of the Elders - is a Cultural Preservation 501(c)3. Cultural preservation and protection is a major concern for indigenous peoples who have become minorities in their own lands. Colonization has often been accompanied by loss of cultural resources including language, histories, art forms, spiritual ceremonies and intellectual knowledge. Retaining and safeguarding culture for future generations has therefore become an urgent matter especially in the face of globalization and the inevitable attrition of older generations who have served as the carriers of culture. We do our best preservation and protection theses thing of indigenous peoples of North America.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to educate the public and carry on for future generations the true culture, traditions, and spiritual ways of the Indigenous people of Turtle Island (North and Central America). And dispel stereo types and discrimination.

Cultural preservation and protection is a major concern for indigenous peoples who have become minorities in their own lands. Colonization has often been accompanied by loss of cultural resources including language, histories, art forms, spiritual ceremonies and intellectual knowledge. Retaining and safeguarding culture for future generations has therefore become an urgent matter especially in the face of globalization and the inevitable attrition of older generations who have served as the carriers of culture.

We are trying to make this happen by educating people young and old on the true culture, traditions, and spiritual ways. We do this by holding cultural events and inviting all to come and participate. We are also willing to go to places like schools, homeschool groups, nursing homes, daycare's, business, military veteran organizations...ect and hold a class.

We have several people willing to volunteer their time to help put on cultural events and go and teach classes.

We have about 300 - 500 people attend our cultural events every year and we teach about 3 class a year with between 5 - 15 people per class. We want more people to attend our cultural events and have more people attend our classes.
