STORY - Wisdom Of Our Elders

This artwork is a representation of the strength and knowledge that our old people hand down within our communities and the hearts of our little ones. We call them our Elders, Our Loved ones, Guider of Generations and Cultural knowledge holders. Lifting us up when times are low and celebrating us in our highs, they are the teachers, the survivors, the ones that bring tenacity and strength and nurture us into good health and well being. They keep our bellies full and our culture strong, sharing stories as we draw strength from their knowledge and experience. We always listen to our Elders, but most of all respect and cherish what they pass down! Our Elders hold a prominent place in our community and family.
