Marshall, Cliff
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v13 n1 p14 Spr 2004
Cliff Marshall is a student in Hoopa Valley, California. As a Native American youth, he reflects on the challenges of growing up on the Hoopa reservation in northern California. He thinks that many of his native people have become lost, disordered, or fickle. He means not to take away any pride from the people, because they are very loving and strong in their beliefs, especially in loyalty to family, tradition, and religion. He shares that he is also very conscious of the fact that his people were purposely put in this place and in this situation. However, so many of them have fallen from grace--either to alcohol or drugs--that he believes the time for talking is over. The time has come for something to be done. He believes that to rebuild what the Hoopa have lost begins with the youth. They need to rebuild the community, the schools, and even the people.
