    Yesah as a group have been scattered and fragmented for many generations.

    How do Indigenous descendants connect with their heritage in a meaningful way with that in mind?

    There was a Siouan diaspora roughly 1000 years ago from the Ohio River Valley that is evident in language.

    There was a diaspora from the NC/VA Piedmont in the 1700s.

    In the 21st century descendants are moving father and more often then in any previous generation. How do we maintain that connection to the land? The land of our ancestors, the traditional territories we occupy today.

    These are questions I hope to address in the coming years and am seeking input from anyone here who has ideas.
