Seeds of Light

Bringing Indigenous languages into the prisons

by Stormy Ogden (Tule River Yokuts, Kashaya Pomo) former prisoner,

For the American Indian people language is an intricate part of their culture. It is the foundation from where the songs and prayers and stories come from. So much of their worldview, culture and ideology are encoded in language, that when a people lose their language, they lose a very important part of themselves.

Seeds of Light is a language program for Native prisoners. We supply cultural and language materials for Native prisoners whenever and wherever possible.
