Today’s panel was very intriguing for me because as elders Selina, Linda, and David, are highly respected specialists in Tlingit culture. Much has changed since the days that they were youth and were subjected to being othered by the standard social norms of the day such as privilege, power, and control. Even though much has changed in such a short time, still many things remain the same. I appreciate how their dialogues offered first hand accounts of what it was like for them as youth and all that they have had to work for since then to preserve their personal identities and cultural identities but to create an avenue for the culture to be revitalized and passed on to the younger generations. Digging deeper into the discussion, I took away a reminder that many people have been working (and fighting) for multiple generations now so that we can see equity in education. As MAT students and future teachers we have a large responsibility not to lose their vision when we step into the classroom for our training period and even once we are professionals at our craft.
