A New Perspective
"Experiences like this challenge me to constantly reshape how I look at the world, my culture and my upbringing. Biases and skewed viewpoints are brought to the surface and internally questioned. (How did I ever think this was OK before? How have I gotten to this point in my life without realizing how wrong these ideas were?) This experience has helped me uncover new ways of looking at the world and my life, but it also makes me worried for the future."
Amazed and Humbled
"This week was truly an eye opening experience. I learned more about Indian history and life, in this week being at the Bad River reservation than I have in my whole life. It was an amazing trip and I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to go."
A Reawakening Experience
"I haven't been down to the sloughs since I was about 10 years old; it's embarrassing to me that I have taken such little interest in the wonders of my reservation. It wasn't until I was about 18 that I truly started to appreciate where I was from."
Thrilled to Meet Her
"It was today that I finally met Dr. Lowe [sic], someone I heard so much about and what a treat. Her story telling keeps me wanting to listen to her all night. Secondly, Dana Jackson met us and gave an equally warm welcome."
