Rules “Spiritual” is a term often used to describe Native people. How would you describe that special character of spirituality to non-Natives?

You may use ceremonies, history, or personal experiences to illustrate how spirituality is a very important part of life.

Teachers may determine age-appropriate media for young entrants.
