Parfois, la re’ponse est juste en face de vouse tout le temps … sometimes the answer is right in front of you all the time. See Native!

You may not think that often about the Native American culture, but would you be able to think or imagine of no aboriginal presence in community. Each day making a Native “moc”print to the heritage and history of this land through Native story, song, music and dance. When Northstar is asked “where is home?” The answer is always “here”. Here! is our Home. Live Native!
Always/Takine a friend,
