I think that learning and passing down your native tounage is very important. Keeping the language can help you get scholarships because you know more than one language. I also think that ceremony help you too not just to keep your native culture going on but doing ceremonies you have to have patients and a lot of respect. knowing your cultural can help in varires of ways. If your taking a native american class and the knowledge is wrong you can correct them. If you know your cultural you can teach the people in your cummunity the specials of being native.
