Cultural Connections Through Language, Education and Ceremony

Last Updated by Native America Editor on

Throughout November, PBS will highlight contributions from Indigenous people about how they, as individuals and as a community, carry on their cultural knowledge and traditions.

Today, we’re featuring the voices of five Native American women. Below, they share their stories of how they continue to maintain their cultural connections through language, education and ceremony. In the process, they are reclaiming their own history and sharing it with the next generation.
