Quotes from Elders

Elder Lawrence Tobacco


English Translation :

Lawrence Tobacco
"If we model to our children from an early age: our language and Culture, they will retain it. The reason I have my identity is due to my grandfather and grandmother. They spoke to me in our language at an early age, daily, and this is what I speak today. My grandfather told me that it was going to be difficult for our people in the future."
