About: In his article, Alfred Kahn calls for all people to participate in a conversation about the challenges of Indigenous Communities and to participate in community-building activities among Indigenous people. Nephew of Franklin Kahn, the first Native American to be elected to the National Spiritual Assembly, the author shares his perspective on growing up among Bahá’í pioneers on Indigenous land. He also shares his candid assessment of the prophetic promises in the Bahá’í Writings about Native Americans’ potential to contribute greatly to the peoples of the world once they have reconciled their own traditional views and teachings with the global promises of Bahá’u’lláh.
