Absolutly. Me...I did not know any different. Till I was 6,I was raised in a household ,out in the boonies on the farm, no TV! ..with only native neighbors, my grandma and greatgrandma, All i knew was old folks and ceremonies and dances and cooking in arbors.
Then into a small town, still many natives and an Indian school, but high school was a city, NO native connection except when we Visited back home. I drifted into the modern world 100 percent...same in college. But in my twenties I realized I missed all that. I had to go back to learn a lot, but
my point isThe beginning my folks gave me let me 'come home.' I live on the home place, keep up the sweat lodge, tipi grounds etc..
Start them out right as little ones..that cannot be replaced.
