Let the river flow

"In storytelling, the teller of the story is never the individual author. The idea of copyright is a western idea. For example, I was taught that when you speak about wisdom, one should not say, 'I know,' because it conveys arrogance, that knowledge originated with me. Instead, one should say, 'I understand.' Knowledge and wisdom did not originate with me; I merely moved into a river of understanding that was flowing from the Creator and had flowed through many others before me." - Roy Aldred, Cree Nations theologian and teacher

Join me in the river. We'll share the stories that flow through us.
