Photographer's Note

The Elders are wisdom-keepers selected by their own people to carry the ancient knowledge and traditional lifeway of their peoples. For millennia, they have carried oral histories, healing wisdom, spiritual practices, accumulated knowledge and experience of their natural environment, stewardship of their sacred lands, and an amazing knowledge of the cosmos among so many other things. The Elders speak their native language, practice their traditional ceremonies, and are responsible to maintaining the integrity of the ancient wisdom and passing it along to subsequent generations. They have much to teach modern cultures about compassion, and living in balanced and sustainable harmony with each other and our precious Mother Earth..................
