This work delves into the feelings and emotions that arose when beginning to question why Indigenous culture is important to daily life.  It contrasts feeling fear of embarking on a vulnerable journey and feeling excited for the lessons that come forth.  How does one look over preconceived notions of what being in touch with culture looks like and find what it truly means.
