'Ask an Elder'

 

ask an elderThis project have been proven positive.

 

Our Elders have so much to share and this is one avenue.

 

Please assist our elders to take part in this project and the many other that will follow. You can have them answer on video, or audio and share it on the blog for all to see. You can leave a contact info. You can even rewrite their words if they can not make it to the computer. It is now up to us to do what it takes to save our cultures.

 

I have a few tear dropping stories that have already come from this blog.

 

*** please be patient because I am a one-manned show, thanks.

Elders are here to bring us into the world and impart their knowledge to us through teaching and guidance. An upright human being is grateful for this and is polite and considerate to their elders. Grandparents, teachers, and other elders in the community can enrich our lives if we give them the chance...

Flexibility is taught by nature. You will see the trees bend in the wind. You will see that tree branches are flexible. To be rigid is to break. When we have life problems it is good for us to be flexible. Sometimes we need to flow with what is going on. If we resist, it becomes more painful.

There is strength in Unity. When we are together we are very powerful. This is the way the ancestors told us we need to be. Strong. We need to unite ourselves. This is why the Elders say, when we make decisions, we must first consider the good of the people. If every person in the community thinks this way, then we will always make strong decisions.

Children learn more by watching than by listening. If we want our children to understand and value trust, they know it by watching how adults live their lives! If we want the children to be respectful, they will observe what the adults do and say to each other. We need to walk our talk. We need to remember the children are watching.
