“This workshop is an innovative and impactful step towards healing. This type of
healing, working with the truth that has never been told about the American
myth, is vital to all of us in our country if we are to move forward in a more
healthy way. ” Brett Shelton (Lakota), Staff Attorney, Native American Rights Fund
