Mile High Magazine 11/05/2023 Spirit of the Sun

Guest: Shannon Francis Executive Director Spirit of the Sun is an Indigenous women led organization that works to empower native youth and native elders through various programs.  The elders are the kings and queens and hold a lot of the knowledge of their ancestors.  Spirit of the Sun has incorporated a seven generation principle that transfers knowledge from the elders to the youth. They offer story telling, remote classes, and building a curriculum.  The curriculum includes things such as agriculture, seed knowledge, and ancestral foods.  November is Native American Heritage Month it is a month to celebrate cultural resilience.  Through cultural resilience they are able to take back that knowledge.
