If we teach the baby from childbirth, they will never forget. I'm not saying that all native kids will embrace it but if there are some that do, the teachings will not be forgotten. Not every family on our rez know any culture or traditions. Don't even want to know. Their loss. I know one young man, 17 years old, who likes to hang out with people who do know about our culture. He's never been taught anything Anishinaabe by his parents. He's learning. Those who really want to learn .......will.

Kids do get caught up in a lot of different stuff and go off in a different direction, but that's the way it goes. All we can do is take care to teach them. They may come back.
