No matter what they might think of themselves right now, students of Tlingit have blown me away with their hard work, dedication, courage, and resolve. This is one of the finer moments of my life, working with people who also hear the calling. It is time for revitalization. No more waiting for something to happen. It is addition instead of subtraction. At long last, we are hearing their voices, our grandparents. At long last, we are reaching out to our elders and trying to hear them in a way they love and understand. Yes, this is a hard path to take. Yes, there are thorns along the path.
