Regardless of our past experiences and the negative statistics of today, we believe the spirit of our People is still alive. We believe the honor and pride in our ancestors is strong, and the innate Creator-given abilities have been blessed with will help reverse the downward spiral of hopelessness and replace it with hope.

We believe that with a renewed sense of hope, esteem and aspirations, we can create new forms of economic prosperity both on and off reservations.

We believe that with a renewed sense of hope, esteem and aspirations, we can eliminate the use of drugs and alcohol abuse as a coping mechanism amongst our People.

We believe that with a renewed sense of hope, esteem and aspirations, we can heal and let go of the traumas of the past and present and replace them with a renewed sense of promise and a belief that our dreams of a better tomorrow will become a reality.

 
 

"The fire of hope that once burned bright within our people,

is rekindled, and shines the pathway for those that follow us in our journey."

~ Jeff Eadie, President, The Indigenous Institute
