George gave me permission to share this photo on my blog. In First Nations cultures there have always been knowledge keepers. These are highly respected people chosen to be responsible for carrying knowledge forward. In oral traditions this was the only way to ensure valuable teachings were passed along and that the integrity of those teachings we upheld. An accurate account of what happened or the essence of the teaching is very important. The ancestors are a powerful way of knowing and accessing knowledge and when evoked in groups can be an incredible way of connecting people.
