SCAIR “Gathering of Native Americans” GONA

ERNIE
Special to the SOBOBA INDIAN REPORTER WEBSITE.

The Southern California American Indian Resource Center, Inc. (SCAIR) held its annual Gathering Of Native Americans (GONA) on June 28, 2017 at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve. The activity was sponsored in part by the California Department of Education and U.S. Department of Labor.

GONA Gathering of Native Americans
GONA participants celebrated with the traditional Round Dance. Funding for the Classy Green Sportswear was contributed by PAF Associates of Santee, CA.

The primary goal of the Family GONA is to stem the cycle of poverty within the San Diego County Native American Indian community. In an effort to achieve this goal as a component of its employment training curriculum SCAIR implements two Family GONA’s annually.

TRIBAL ENTERTAINMENT
San Diego SCTCA Tribal TANF site manager, Paul Miranda (Pala Band of Mission Indians) played the guitar and sang. Steve Garcia (Gabrielino-Tongva) danced the Eagle Dance.

The SCAIR Family GONAs include the extended community family of tribal elders, adults, parents and youth. The GONA curriculum is designed to develop positive self-esteem, goal setting, traditional tribal values and tribal cultural awareness for the Native American Tribal community in east San Diego County.

The program's objectives are:

  1. To promote American Indian Education.
  2. To increase awareness of the employment training Program.
  3. To increase awareness of the importance of tribal leadership.
  4. To promote unity within the Native American Tribal Community.
  5. To promote the understanding and importance of traditional tribal customs & values.
  6. To increase the self-sufficiency and employability of the individual.

Cultural resilience is a relatively new term, but it is a concept that predates the so-called "discovery" of Native American people. The elders teach that children are gifts from the Creator and it is the family, community, school, and tribe's responsibility to nurture, protect, and guide them. Thus, resilience is not new to the Native people; it is a concept that has been taught for centuries. The word is new; the meaning is old.

In spite of tribal differences, there are shared core values, beliefs and behaviors.

Ten are highlighted here to guide our thinking about innate natural, cultural resilience: spirituality, child-rearing extended family, veneration of age/wisdom/tradition, respect for nature, generosity and sharing, cooperation/group harmony, autonomy/respect for others, composure/patience, relativity of time, and non-verbal communication. (Heavy Runner et al. 1997).
