Dear Friends and Relatives,  

The return of Spring is a time of rebirth and new beginnings! It inspires us to reflect on our survival of winter and seek out ways to create new pathways to sustainability, especially our relationships with family, relatives, and community. It is a season for new hope and expanding the principles of generosity and compassion.  As we leave the long chilly nights of winter, enter into a new season, welcome the sun, its warmth and promise, please remember the Wisdom of the Elders and if possible, make a tax-deductible contribution.

Wisdom of the Elders is a native non-profit organization devoted to recording, preserving, and sharing Native oral history, cultural arts, language concepts and traditional ecological knowledge of our exemplary indigenous elders, storytellers and tribal leaders. Your support and contributions have enhanced our commitment to Native American cultural sustainability, multimedia education, and race reconciliation. We are grateful for your help in making that a reality.

We pledge renewed energy and hard work to ensure that our sacred stories and traditional ecological knowledge are recognized and preserved.  We are confident that with your generous donations, WOTE will continue the good work.

Thank you for contributing to the success of the Wisdom of the Elders and joyful Spring Blessings to you all!

–Gerry RainingBird and the Wisdom Staff
