About the Conference Theme

Our theme draws on the powerful imagery of "roots," symbolizing the deep cultural and ancestral foundations that Native American communities are built upon, and "wings," representing the empowerment, growth, and future aspirations of children under your care. It underscores the importance of nurturing a strong cultural identity while providing the tools and opportunities for the next generation to soar. The theme also implicitly touches on the holistic approach to wellness and healing, suggesting a journey that is grounded in tradition yet forward-looking.
