Message from Executive Director

Dear Wisdom Community,

Thank you for your support!

On behalf of all connected with Wisdom of the Elders, Inc., including board, staff and volunteers, we wish everyone a joyful new year. We hope that 2018 will be a year of prosperity, compassion, kindness, and a deeper connectedness to our cultural values and practices.

With your support, the Wisdom of the Elders’ winter fundraising campaign is successfully winding down, and this positive accomplishment is made possible thanks to the efforts and generosity of friends, family, and partners like you.

Your contributions are being used to support Wisdom’s mission to record, preserve, and share Native oral history, cultural arts, language concepts and traditional ecological knowledge of our valued indigenous elders, storytellers and tribal leaders.

Thanks to supporters of Wisdom of the Elders, our commitment to Native American cultural sustainability, multimedia education, and race reconciliation will continue in a good way.

We encourage everyone who have yet to contribute, to consider making a donation, as your help results in more opportunities to share the rich stories, oral narratives, traditional wisdom and knowledge of Native elders through public radio, television production, multimedia curriculum development, and public events

Thank you to all Wisdom supporters for the time, commitment and energy for making our campaign a success, and we wish you all a most prosperous New Year!

— Gerry
