Mission: The Legacy was founded in 1997 by family and friends of the late Rich Mullins, a Christian musician living on the Navajo Reservation. His dream was to bring hope, encouragement and healing to native youth living with a fatalistic view of the world and their lives. In an oral society, art and music can be tools that bring healing and coping skills that are more effective than traditional counseling and development. Plus, our program trains youth in music and artistic skills that can be developed as a trade if they continue in the Artistic Discovery and Development camps. The camps also incorporate emotional and mental development as well. The traveling school is the follow up program that works with youth in these fields throughout the school year.
