Looking back, looking forward

Looking back, looking forward

Many Native American Tribes throughout Turtle Island look to the heavens to mark significant times and seasons. As the new year approaches, we take the opportunity to reflect. Looking back, we celebrate our community’s  passion, dedication and hard work, and share our gratitude for the outstanding progress we have all made. And, we thank YOU, for your amazing belief and support – you make all our work possible!

Here is a look back at some of this year’s memories:

We also celebrate our regularly-scheduled programs including our sports programs, Culture Nights, Family Nights, Portland Youth & Elders Council, Homebuyer Education Classes, Chxi San Playgroup, WIC Clinics, Foster Family Sibling Nights, Elders Tai Chi, Micro-enterprise Classes, College Nights, Healing Circle, Foster Care Support, After-school tutoring and LEAD Cohort – just to name a few more!

We thank our dedicated employees and volunteers who provide  critical services every day and thank our wonderful Board of Directors for their leadership and guidance.

Yes, 2017 has been a great year! The support of our board, donors, sponsors, staff and volunteers have had a huge impact on Portland’s Native community and on the social and cultural landscape of the Portland area at large. From infant to Elder, together, we will continue to empower Portland’s growing Native American community in 2018!

With blessings for the New Year,
Your friends at NAYA Family Center
