1) The sweat lodge really helps me clear my mind and makes me focus on the main things that are important and mean the most instead of the little things. Also when I’m singing with my elders it helps me open my eyes and see right from wrong. Another thing that I really is important is learning my language because when I talk to certain people it’s cool that i understand them.
2) It helps me because when I pray I think about my rez and about the others who said they were going to go to college but never did so it kind of makes me say to my self it’s something I need to do.
3)The way I prepare my self for giving back to my community is by telling the young one’s how important it is to go to college or just school in-general and how helpful it is going to be in the future.
