The Children of the Sun

140123_saints_2Being that we are taking a look at the life of Spokane Garry, I thought it would be good to take a look at his people. The Spokane Tribe now lives on 159,000 acres in Wellpinit, Washington, and continues to contribute to the larger community of Spokane.

What is their tribal vision? “The vision of the Sustainable Community Master Plan is to support our Tribal community in attaining a desirable quality of life; to include our traditional homelands, and promote a clean, healthy, safe, drug and alcohol free environment for our people. This will be accomplished through sustainable and culturally relevant practices that include preserving natural areas and promoting access to education, transportation, public, private, and non-profit jobs, recreation and housing choices to meet the current needs of the tribal community and future generations.”

Watch for  part 2 of Saints Are Us  next week!
