Some aspects of Indigenous Culture that prepares you to have a successful and lead an meaningful life are ceremonies, talking circles, and language. Ceremonies are important to me because they’ll most likely teach you on how to be patient because they can sometimes take a very long time of just listening. However, talking circles are important as well because they help teach you how to be more respective towards others, and what they have to say. Finally language is also very important too because your language tells who you are, where you come from, and your culture.
Cultural knowledge and participation in Ceremony help you prepare for college by helping you understand another language such as your own or it may be easier to learn another language, and ceremony teaches you patients which sometimes you need in class.
Culture helps prepare me for giving back to my community by showing how to give back in ceremonies, and what my community likes to get back from another person, such as cedar.
