Learning and playing are fundamental human experiences that our ancestors cherished and developed. We build on their knowledge and practices to nurture and lift our people and communities into the future.
Our ancestors observed and grew deep connections with the world around them.
Our ancestors nurtured relationships and cultures that planted them securely in their worlds.
Our ancestors wove knowledge and learning throughout their art, language and cultures.
Our ancestors grew strong identities in an unfolding world, exploring, innovating, and flourishing.
