Honoring Native cultures, traditions, and histories at Amazon
How much do you know about Native Americans in the U.S. today? Did you know there are more than 500 federally recognized tribes, and the culture is as prevalent today as it was centuries ago?
I wish that people knew that Native American culture is alive and well. We speak our language and live our traditions today, even those of us living in cities away from our homelands, said Fawn Sanchez, an Army Veteran and AWS Enterprise Support Training Manager.
To me, being Native American means having an interconnected relationship to my homeland and to my culture and traditions. This guides who I am and how I live my life, said Sanchez, who is Shoshone Bannock from Fort Hall Idaho and Carizzo-Comecrudo from Monterrey, Mexico. Native culture and traditions are passed down through elders, through storytelling and ceremony. I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up in a Native community and learn about my culture, and am dedicated to sharing that with others.
