“WE SHALL REMAIN is a music video that was created to address the effects of historical trauma in our tribal communities. Many times, these untended wounds are at the core of much of the self-inflicted pain experienced in Native America. Much like fire, this pain can either be devastatingly destructive or wisely harnessed to become fuel that helps us to rise up and move forward in life with joy, purpose and dignity.” — Coeur d’Alene Tribal Youth
This video was created by Coeur d’Alene Tribal Youth with funding support from the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections and the Millennium Fund.
