Hello, all my relatives. This is the Lakota greeting for all people. It is our philosophy that in this world we are all related. The plants, animals, humans and all things share a spirit. It is also our philosophy that in this world we must help each other to survive and grow.
This blog chronicles my journeys and discoveries as I travel on behalf of the American Indian College Fund, working towards helping all of my relatives learn and grow. I will relay the excitement of our students, their struggles and successes, and the successes of our tribal colleges in this journal.
I invite you to share your own stories of learning and growth with me, using the comment tool, including your ideas and journeys of discovery in Indian education.
In a good way,
Richard B. “Rick” Williams
