The second Elders gathering was an opportunity for Elders to share their vision for the future, and the knowledge they possess about how to get there. Throughout the two days that our Elders gathered in Thunderbird Hall, they generously shared stories about their lives, their wisdom and a weatlh of traditional knowledge about how to care for our children. It is clear that Elders envision an important role for themselves at the heart of future programs that will protect and strengthen families and communities. Our Elders and communities have spoken and we have listened. We are proud to be working together to build strong, healthy communities for generations to come.
