Covid-19 has been quite a burden for everyone. Our Native communities have suffered, and this pandemic has brought up historical trauma. However, where there is darkness, there is light. I think we can all agree that home and being at home has been the one saving grace in all of this pandemonium.
The Native Learning Center wanted to bring our native communities together by highlighting the household and how it brings comfort to our Native Youth. We also wanted to take our communities’ minds off of the day-to-day crisis of Covid-19 and focus on our roots, which consists of creativity, ingenuity, and self-determination. Therefore, the Native Learning Center created a poster contest for tribal youth called What Home Means to Me – an art contest focusing on the home, which tends to bring comfort to all.
The Native Learning Center family wants to thank all of you for taking the time to create such wonderful artwork. Keep striving and keep up the great work.
