Jason Dropik: Making Student Days Meaningful

“The ancestors, those that came before us, talked about living, balance and living in harmony with all of creation, everything around us. How do we slow down enough to be observant of all the gifts that are in front of us? A sense of gratitude has been really helpful through pandemic and changes that exist in schools and communities. Thankfulness and gratitude, it’s hard to be upset and to not think about it.”

-Jason Dropik

“There are so many teachings and experiences that American Indian History has provided that were either erased, moved or taken away.”
