Promoting Importance of Understanding the meaning of “American Indian Culture”
SIA’s membership consist of representatives of American Indian specific organizations providing services to the St. Paul American Indian community, and
knowledge of the unique American Indian culture continues to be limited and inadequately offered for study in America’s educational institutions, which further resulted in benign ignorance about its presence and importance in American Indian social norms, beliefs systems and traditional ways.
That SIA, effective immediately, strongly urge its member organizations to create a platform, in cooperation with state, local and other systems it works with, that will effectively demonstrate the vital importance of American Indian culture. This reflects a new beginning that traditions to our community’s healing, health and well-being are incorporated into all that we do together.
This Resolution was Adopted by St. Paul Indians in Action the 12th day of August 2015.
