The NATIVE SONS AND DAUGHTERS PROGRAMS® were developed and are administered by National Longhouse, Ltd. These programs emphasize the vital role that parents play in the growth and development of their children. The original program plan of sons learning directly from their father was patterned from the tradition of some North American Indian cultural groups. These programs seek to strengthen the foundations for a positive lifelong relationship between parent and child that is mutually beneficial and satisfying.  These are themes of adventures you can look forward to each year.
