Know Your History

20130620-192501.jpg

SCIP had the privilege to spend time with Michael Quijano-West on a beautiful afternoon in Salem. When asked how the National Park Service reaches out to local communities Michael spoke openly about the need for diversity within the National Park Service. If we recognize and embrace our cultural values we can use this knowledge to understand others. We can work to establish a Service that reaches out to communities in meaningful ways that respect our multi-cultural society. He shared that change is difficult but we can be the agents of change.
