Welcome to Today’s Native!
Today’s Native is a resource from tribal members, Native American people, and friends in the Native community.
Our Creator has provided a way for us to know Him and His plan for our lives. As the Creator of all, He truly is our God, and the God of every people group. We have received His message and have chosen His one way for all people to come to Him—through His Son, Jesus Christ. This relationship with God is different from religion; it is true worship. We have found that genuine healing is found in a joyful relationship with Jesus Christ. This is the wonderful message that we, as Indigenous People, want to share with you!

Honoring Those Who Served
Across the Navajo Nation, the heart language of the Dine’ People has endured. If the policies of our government had been successful, there would be no more Navajo speakers today. Many of the tribal elders tell of their experiences as children being shipped off to government boarding school where speaking in their native tongue was forbidden and often punished.
In spite of this, the Navajo language has not only endured, but was a key component in the winning of World War II.
Today’s Native Articles
My name is Merritt Youngdeer. I’m a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in Cherokee, North Carolina. My grandparents, like many tribal members from all across our country, attended Carlisle Indian Boarding School.
I grew up greatly admiring all those who have served in the Armed Forces. I knew that many Native Americans (including my father and uncles) had served this country with distinct honor and fulfilled their call of duty.
The year was 1934, and I was six months old. My father, mother, and I lived in a small settlement in the foothills of the mountains 100 miles northwest of San Carlos. Our home was a wickiup that my father had built for us.
