BEHIND THE NAME
URBAN NATIVE ERA:
Urban embraces the heart and soul of life, and culture produced from living within a city. We are a movement to call for all people to educate themselves about indigenous cultures and philosophy; so that our traditional beliefs may continue to empower society.
Native, Indigenous, or Aboriginal means descending from those who have precolonial ties to the land. But we are much more than history. We feel a connection to the land which allows us to breath, heal, and dream. This feeling; an inability to accept our reality in its colonial context.
Era, a period in time with distinctive character. A time that calls for teaching, learning, and to share the culture and philosophy of our ancestry. This is the moment to rise as indigenous people of the world.
