Celebrating our shared history with our Native American brothers and sisters, making our hearts good toward each other with dignity, honor, and respect.
A good friend recently told me you cannot write American history from one viewpoint only. The story of the American frontier and the experience of this great land can’t be told without the story of the American Indian. Such an attempt would leave out one half of the story. In fact, it has been 250 years and yet we still struggle with not having a “shared history.”
Our prayer, in Native American fashion, “Creator above, make our hearts good toward each other. Let us treat each other with dignity. Let us honor each other in good ways. And teach us to respect each other for we are all His children, and we all share in this same journey, and only with our combined stories there is truth.”
The Watauga Vision is made up of many volunteers including craft and tech savvy persons, historians, writers, educators, interpreters of history, several chartered and nationally recognized historical groups and societies, and encouraging friends.
Join with us!
Let us all agree to this: If the Creator of all people has made us in the Creator’s “image and likeness,” then all people of all colors have God-given dignity, and we all must pray for the courage to become peacemakers. When we all do this, we are truly blessed.
