Cihuapilli Rose Amador and Sundance Martinez interviews Ronald John Pinkham (Nez Perce), a mental health and youth counselor and medicine man on Native Voice TV.
Pinkham has worked with many tribes. When Martinez asked Pinkham as to what can be done with youth who are on the wrong path of anger, violence, drugs and alcohol, Pinkham gave many examples based upon his experience helping youth get back on the good path.
He mentions how the elders, the sacred sweat lodge and ceremonies helped those youth move towards the good path for they felt as one with their families and people instead alone and disengaged.
Pinkham has many good stories in this half hour show. Please enjoy and comment as to how to learn more from him.
