Traditional Knowledge Keepers encourages us to acknowledge our resilience in “Keeping the Circle Strong” for generations and continue to do so for generations to come. This theme also expresses how our traditional teachings come from Mother Earth encourages us to live a life that will inspire and produce healthy future generations.
In “Keeping the Circle Strong” we honor the past, present, and future of our communities and continue to walk in the footsteps of our grandfathers and grandmothers. Join us in this celebration.
“A warrior’s purpose involved developing his abilities to become an asset to the village. Today, that “village” can be your family, community, campus, clients, co-workers-anyone you serve.”
The Tiny Warrior, by D.J. Vanas
We honor our modern-day warriors who keep our villages and communities safe and protected through their bravery, courage, love, trust, wisdom, and humility and by developing their assets through education.
Many thanks again, in friendship AAWC Committee
