“How do we restore our cultural knowledge, cultural attachment, acquisition of our language - it is a journey of enculturation that results in competence in the language, values, and ceremonies of the culture. The separation, loss and devaluation was colonization. It separated us from our Native knowledge. We have a right to know and become that person asking “what can I contribute?” instead of further assimilation. Thank you for your help so many have stepped up to help. This Native Centered Evidence Based Study is my life passion. The book carries a message of hope and resilience for the coming generations.” –Dr. Sidney StoneBrown
