There is also a way to make your passions known without hijacking the purpose of these meetings. New York to New Orleans is about a 30hour train ride. But either way, it really resonated with me. Even later as I have attended NAC on a few other reservations I find it different than my tribal practices, but there is a similarity regardless of reservation or tribe and that in of itself can be comforting. Also put some thought into your questions. In a place like Capitol Hill where there is an array of issues at any given moment, it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle.

When you are a kid and they ask you what you want to be when you grow up, most kids are saying what they see in media or what they see in their community.

Last year I had to give a tour to a group of Native 8th graders who were visiting my school and out of curiosity I asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. I spent a lot of time over the years idly watching those trains, wondering about where they went and if I could go too. As for the weather, it rains a lot and sporadically so it might be worth packing a small umbrella. This was more than just an intensive experience in policy and leadership. On our reservation, Veterans have their own monument. Aside from time being so focused and precise, it is also scarce.
