The Ancestors tell us that we have our beginnings in them. We have their blood, their values, and the tribal customs that carry through.
Because of the wisdom in the Elders, the Ancestors remind us to keep the Elders close, for that history is what will help us to find new ways to do things and keep us from repeating mistakes.
We are missing so much of our history because we have let the Elders fade away and locked them in senior care homes, and disregarded their stories.
Today, find an Elder, and find their story.
