Vivre dans deux mondes. Phil Caterino Phil Caterino
Native American people are in a very unique position in the world, considering their history since pre-colonization until present day. With several attempts at cultural genocide through assimilation, forced relocation, language loss, stolen lands, the reservation system and overall identity loss, Native Americans today talk about the concept of living in “two worlds” as they take back their identities, yet continue to move forward in a contemporary time.

Some describe it like walking through life with a moccasin on one foot and a sneaker on the other. There is a sense of having to bridge both their own heritage and culture with the demands of the modern world and the American system. The way Indigenous people have kept their culture intact within their daily lives is often opposed to the compartmentalized non-Indigenous culture of laws, systems and deeds driven by consumerism. Laws are created to protect private property and natural resources from the land and are often exploited at all costs for profit of government and corporations. In contrast, many individual Native traditions continue to teach the harmony between the land and the beings that reside on it; much respect and honor is given to this concept through prayer, ceremony and acknowledgement.
