We Care! We Help! Investing in our Future - Young Leaders
May all our words and actions encourage our young leaders toward their natural aptitudes and passions whether it be math, science, archaeology, anthropology, activism, military service, music or the arts. Our youth are our hope for the future. With your help we aim to meet the highest standards of excellence, lifelong learning and the strengthening of our communities through the giving of scholarships to deserving youth, helping with resumes & job seeking and helping create fuller Native American Indigenous curriculum in our schools K-12 and universities. We also volunteer to encourage, mentor and aid these young people to live a life they love and love the life they live powerfully, while not giving up on their natural God-given talents. We think they are well worth it. Thank you in advance for your generous contribution. Together we are investing in the future. Our future. Your future. Their future.
Honoring Our Young Leaders
Adopting 75 Students Affected by N.C. Flood
LUMBERTON NC — About 75 students at Lumberton High School in North Carolina have learned an important lesson without opening a book — that there are folks who have never met them, who don’t know their families, but want to help them navigate some troubled waters. These students, who remain homeless after flooding from Hurricane Matthew (2016), are being anonymously adopted by donors who have signed Sanctuary on the Trail up for the Adopt a Pirate program. We are working with Adrian Hammonds, one of five Lumberton High School school guidance counselors who have been working to provide students what they need following Hurricane Matthew. (MORE)

May Great Spirit always shine Light on Kerry’s path and remove obstacles from her possibilities. We are proud of what Kerry has accomplished and has yet to create.
Transformation Circle Outside Retreat for College-Aged Leaders
BLUEMONT VA - We are pleased to offer college-age students a unique leadership retreat outside in nature. As Native Americans we have the drum circle, dance circle, talking circle, but this new concept is the "Transformation Circle."
The retreat includes overnight camping at the Sanctuary on the Trail.™ There is nothing really magic about a place in and of itself. The "magic" happens when we bravely open our hearts and minds, lean in a little closer and share and learn. There is also something really powerful about coming together around a fire, spending time in nature, eating healthy food together, exploring the impact and importance of language and discovering something “you didn’t know you didn’t know.” To arrange a "Transformation Circle," for your university or classmates, please contact us at the above contact information.
