“To be centered is to stand alone together”
Mission Statement: To make available to all people an understanding of Native American culture in order to provide strong personal and community values.
Cultural Story Teller, Educator, Speaker and Author James Beard, aka Noodin, lives in Monadnock State Park, in Jaffrey, New Hampshire on Mt. Monadnock where he works as a Park Ranger, Interpreter, Camp Host and Wilderness Responder. He maintains an area of the park to honor this special place he refers to as Mona, with a ceremonial fire, a medicine healing lodge and areas for native and cultural gatherings. These things are done to protect Mona.
His first book, White Mocs on the Red Road – Walking Sprit in a Native Way, is uniquely presented to aid people in gaining insight to the mysteries of the Elder teachings of the Traditional Native American.
Programs offered through Northeast American Cultural Resource provide insight to cultural values and personal ethics to aid people in finding ways to enrich their lives. The intent of this site is to encourage awareness of Native American teachings and Native American people. It is a pathway to give those seeking knowledge of their heritage a place to begin. The hope is that all people will understand and respect Creator as well as the Native American people with their rich culture.
In the words of Noodin, “My white heritage is enhanced by ancient teachings we all once had. I walk a red road in order to better understand the original teachings of all people.”
