In the early summer of 2013, Kevin Abourezk (Rosebud Sioux) allowed me to record his everyday activities at the newspaper. He led me up to the news area, took his seat, and began working on a story about the tribal council's decision to let their members vote on whether to allow alcohol onto the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Ah, summertime in Indian Country!  For me it means so much more than those homegrown 4th of July parades, powwows and gatherings. Summer showcases community and Native people’s uncanny ability to make something fun, useful and spiritually nurturing out of even the most limited resources. 

This season also highlights the exuberant heart of Native folks and reminds the world that even though ours is an ancient culture, we are indeed a vibrant part of the contemporary world.

It was very interesting watching my daughter throughout the pregnancy. Our family has always been very “food conscious”, preferring the organic, maintaining a garden to insure food quality, and resisting the lure of fast foods (maybe I should state “trying to”).

As Father’s Day approaches, my heart is overwhelmed with a sense of bitter sweetness. It is at this time that Video Letters will be re-released through Vision Maker Media at the request of my three grown daughters. Our hearts are in mourning at the loss of their father Marvin (featured in Video Letters) as we lost him in the fall of 2012. My daughters miss him intensely.

This session was presented as a three-hour clinic. We began our session with introductions and a question prompt of “What is ‘home’?” Each participant shared, with one even highlighting that where she lived wasn’t her ‘home’. This was a perfect transition into the introduction, “What is ‘home’ for the Poncas?” Larry led a brief discussion about the historical aspects of the tribe and how the documentary, curriculum and the workshop sections of the project began to take shape.

What does Growing Native mean to you? That is a question we posed to the Growing Native Advisory Council as we went through pre-production. The answers we received were varied, but connected – it’s growing us as a people in a way that sustains us as a people, it’s taking things that we knew and that worked in the past and building on that, it’s illustrating the interconnectedness of everything that we do.
