Blog entry by Colton Sterling-Moses
I'll start off saying I'm open to any and all feedback.
The thing that is on my mind the most is the loss of native rights and culture. I keep seeing all these things on the news and all over social media; myself I do my best to live a traditional life not just for my sake but for my children and my grandchildren yet to come. As is I feel bad for them because those people who are not here yet will not have the elders I have in this moment of my life. The fear I have about this makes me think I'm not good enough or doing enough to preserve my peoples way of life. Its very hard and I know not all of that is depending on me but I am extremely grateful I surround myself with people who share the same goal to preserve our culture even down to the name of an off flower. The other fear is that after the hard work there maybe nothing left to save and that my grandchildren wont know the taste of wild salmon ect. Anyways this is just me opening up letting you all have a glimpse into the life and mind of Colton.
