I am a retired school social worker, Native American and looking to develop programs for Native Amercan families. I was raised near Lyndonville N.Y. and summer employment was harvesting apples, black/sour cherries and cabbage. I believe integrating both Native philosopy, respect for the land and healing is necessary for Native women.
