Description of Activity

Summarize the basic tenets of some indigenous faiths.

Distribute Handout 1, Indigenous Religions Fact Sheet. Review the handout and explain any unfamiliar concepts or terms. Ask youth to compare the fact sheet with the poster of the Principles. Have them identify themes, values, and traditions of indigenous faiths that might hold meaning for Unitarian Universalists. Invite the youth to share their questions about indigenous religions and answer any questions you can. Note remaining questions to research before the next workshop.
