The association have different aims :
First, to make the public aware of the Natives Americans people of U.S.A. and Canada, and to bring up those living on the French territory, in French Guyanna (Wayana, Arawak, Ka’lina…)
To save the Native American Sign Language as a Cultural and living heritage of humanity, in danger of extinction, and in this way, to make the public sensitive to the deaf and hearing impaired people, and help to understand this deafness as a difference and a boon, not as a handicap.
The association have the vocation to be a bridge between individuals and peoples, with a view of respect, attention, and fraternity.
Passionate about the First Nation Cultures, and having the opportunity to meet the Natives americans in the country of Mexico, in Ontario, Canada, and in France when they are coming in, it’s through the traditional tales that Vincent Rouard choose to share his passion.
To tell the sacred legends and tales, Vincent Rouard obtained, after inform them, the approbation of some Natives americans coming from U.S.A. and Canada.
There is many ways to present the Natives Cultures: spending the evening around a campfire, through an animation with olds traditional games easy to realize, etc…
Each bustle is sharing in a very respectful attitude and in a listening approach of anyone, because everybody got his place.
The traditional tales permit me to talk about different subjects witch can be discussed (solidarity, respect, differences, birth, death,…).
The objects presented are traditional and shows of the past and the present: snowshoes, mocassins, newspapers, music, etc
The interventions are intended for all kind of audience: at old people’s home, with elders suffering from the Alzheimer disease, trisomy 21… at schools, at special school for physically or mentally handicapped children, spending the evening around a campfire with children of leisure centers, at primary school, etc…
