The project helped connect the students with their Native culture and helped us see the Reservation through the student's eyes. Throughout the year the project was hands-on; David always engaged all of the students that were present, making sure they had and knew their equipment. He modeled the utmost respect for each of the students and monitored the respect between the students. He always cared about the involvement of each student and the class. David continually asked the students to evaluate their work and to make it better and encouraged them to share their work with other students and the community.

The primary goal of A VOICE-Art Vision & Outreach In Community Education is to foster excitement and confidence in youth who, due to their economic standing, may not otherwise have this opportunity. It is our hope that the skills and self-confidence nurtured in literary and visual arts learning will provide tools for these young people to aid them in their decisions and endeavors, to guide them toward success and ultimately give them a reason to look to their futures with hope.
