From the Roots of Our Past Grow the Promises of Tomorrow
Native American Role Model Addresses USDA Employees about Global Unity Through Diversity. Janie serves as the Senior Advisor for Tribal Affairs at the USDA. Her post describes the activities associated with the National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month ceremony, "From the Roots of Our Past Grow the Promises of Tomorrow," held in Washington, DC, Tuesday, November 9, 2010. Janie highlighted the address given by Billy Mills, 1964 Olympic Gold Medalist and the inspirational words that he spoke, including, “Build a better America and in doing so, build a better world. Global unity through diversity, the future of humankind.” I encourage everyone to check out the blog post to learn more about the ceremony, Billy Mills' insprirational life, and his presentation. Our thanks to Janie for posting the message.
