Tell us about your traditions

As we celebrate the contributions of rural and native women across the country, we want to hear from you about your family and cultural traditions. We all know that traditions establish the foundation for our values, they are a way to pass on our history, and help us bond with each other in our communities.
So we ask;
What traditions are you practicing and helping to perpetuate?
Why is it important you?
How is your sense of identity and belonging tied to those traditions?
