Story Telling

Elders as Teachers

Power of Words

Visual representation of nature's laws

From Gitksan and Wet’suwet’en Chiefs, "The ownership of territory is a marriage of the Chief and the land. Each Chief has an ancestor who encountered and acknowledged the life of the land. From such encounters came power. The land, the plants, the animals and the people all have spirit – they all must be shown respect. That is the basis of our law" (qtd Archibald, Coyote Learns 237).
