The goal of the Summit is to foster community building between Nations. To bring together traditional teachings and contemporary minds to imagine ways forward for our people. To recognize that while there is much talked about suffering and trauma in and about our communities we are also growing, thriving and have a lot to teach about how to find strength in laughter, joy and respect for other living things.
