The curriculum offers participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of responsible fatherhood as reflected in Native American values and beliefs. There is an immediate need to bring men back to strengthening families— they are the greatest untapped resource.

”I totally love the program of Motherhood Is Sacred and Fatherhood Is Sacred.  The sessions are true to all native people and the way we were brought up.  Several of the sessions are the way I was taught as a child and have taught & passed down to my children, nieces, nephews, and family members.  This program needs to be offered throughout our communities, and in schools to our students. I love how it is non–judgmental and open, makes you feel welcomed and willing to open up.”
