Our unifying curriculum is always based on the sacred order of shelter, fire, water, food. The North Unit will offer an additional focus on the Guilds of Journaling, Inside Sit Spot and Culture. The totem animal is the Buffalo. We cultivate the qualities of reflection, regeneration, and connection to the ancestors.
