STORY

 

“Until the lion learns how to write, every story will glorify the hunter.”

          -An African Proverb

 

“Teach your children what we have taught our children… that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. This we know. The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth. This we know. All things are connected…”

          -Chief Seattle

We see a place where people of all ages

  • Can meet freely and peacefully engage in “difficult dialogues” for the benefit of each other and equity for all;

  • Can research ancestry, stories from the past, and those truths of history that are often unknown and untold;

  • Can observe, research, learn from and experience the interrelatedness and resiliency among all life systems;

  • Can create or re--discover stories of past, present and future art forms--expressions of stories from among all peoples: poetry, music, dance and creative storytelling

  • Can spend time for self-renewal, meditation, prayer and quiet reflection
