Our Vision is for all Native American youth to lead full and healthy lives, to have equal access to opportunity, and to draw strength from their culture and inspire one another.

My art piece was done in colored pencil and took approximately 2 months to complete. I decided to focus on the resilience part of the prompt. I drew a fancy shawl dancer as I see traditional dances as a form of resilience. I see traditional dance as a way to resist the fading of our culture. Although I personally do not dance, it is incredibly inspiring to see young Native Americans taking part in our traditional ways.
