|Native Sons and Daughters™ are programs that were developed and are administered by National Longhouse, Ltd. The original program plan of children learning directly from their father was patterned from the tradition of some North American Indian cultural groups.

However, advancement through the Phase program is not required and many families are members and simply enjoy the various activities the program offers.
