Indigenous children need to see someone up close – really up close – someone who has defied the limits that they have actually believed in and set in their minds. They need to hear that it has been done before by someone exactly like them.
My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back. ~ Louis Riel
In many shamanic traditions, optimum health is considered to be the equal expression of these archetypes. Indigenous peoples consider it vitally important to be balanced in all four areas: leading, healing, visioning, and teaching. For most people, however, this balance is far from reality. ~ Angeles Arrien
The past has a way of returning to haunt you. It doesn’t go and lie down quietly. We need to acknowledge that we had a horrendous past. We needed to look the beast in the eye so that the past wouldn’t hold us hostage anymore… This is a moral universe. We have to take account of the fact that truth and lies, goodness and evil are things that matter. ~ Desmond Tutu
