The best advice I was ever able to give to Native American Kids I would talk to on Reservations was that a specific career goal is not as important as getting a well rounded education, and that reading and self education on an ongoing basis is vital.

For kids in SP, a further piece of advice I could give would be to become fluent and comfortable speaking English! Many otherwise smart teenagers I've met would be unemployable in many fields, not due to their inability to speak English, but rather their comfort level when communicating in any language other than Creole?


It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
