“The battle for Indian children will be won in the classroom, not on the streets or on horses. The students
of today are our warriors of tomorrow.”
— Wilma P. Mankiller, CHEROKEE

The world is constantly changing. One of the strengths of Indian people has been our adaptability. In today’s
world, education is what we need to survive. We need doctors, lawyers, teachers, scientists. We can become
these things and still live in a cultural way. We need to live in two worlds; the educated world and the Indian
cultural world. Education will help protect our land, our people’s health, and provide knowledge for our
people. We must teach reading, writing, and arithmetic. Also, we must teach the language, the culture, the
ceremony, and the tradition of our people.
Creator, let me remember You are my teacher.
