Tradition of Respect

"There's a lot of confusion in our reality right now. I think we need to remember tradition is based upon respect. And they may mess with the ceremonies and the language and all of that because that's the way this attack comes against us, but in reality tradition is based on respect.

No matter what the culture is, true indigenous tradition is based upon respect and I think we really need to think about that and remember that as we fight and struggle to hang onto our traditions, because sometimes in our fight and struggle to hang onto our traditions we forget that - the tradition of respect. We pretend that our own righteousness justifies whatever action we take."
