VisionQuest Youth Academy -  2006, 2007, 2008, 2009

Native traditional people provide native teachings to troubled youth at alternative juvenile facilities.  Ceremony introducing the teachings of balance and centering are demonstrated.  Work is done in group and one to one with the youth.  Child Care Workers are educated to re-enforce the teachings and incorporate the benefits of the program in the milieu of the program. The teachings used by VisionQuest were given by the Crow People.  In the first picture below and to the right is Dan Old Elk who is one of the original people of VisionQuest.
