Another Video With Oren

Thanks to a partnership including the Amerind Foundation Museum of Dragoon, AZ and a University of Arizona American Indian Studies class, Asserting Sovereignty through Cultural Preservation Oren visited Southern Arizona to share his message "Looking Toward the Seventh Generation." His message is that every act and decision made by leaders should be made with the next seven generations in mind. While the message isn't new it is well worth remembering in this time of war, economic, and environmental con- cerns. To read more and view the video Click Here.
