National Longhouse

Pals Forever-Friends Always®

image5

Our motto captures the spirit of the special bond that parent and  child will develop through their participation in Native Sons and  Daughters Programs®. 

Special program activities are unique in ways that cannot be  experienced anywhere else. Parent and child participate in them  together, molding and shaping their relationship, learning about each  other, learning from each other, building mutual respect, friendship and  trust in one another. By traveling the special paths of Native Sons  & Daughters program together, parent and child share memories and  form relationships that will make them “Pals Forever-Friends Always®.”

Respect for First Nation Culture & Heritage

The Indian (First Nation) theme of the NATIVE SONS AND DAUGHTERS  PROGRAMS® family activites is significant, but not simply because a  North American Indian provided the inspiration for them. Deeply rooted  in North American Indian culture is a profound appreciation for the  Creator, or Great Spirit, as well as an understanding of the  independence of the forces of nature. The importance of these values is  becoming increasingly accepted in modern urban society which, until  recently, had failed to recognize their significance.
