Beautiful and sad, yet wonderful that this tale has been repeated by every indigenous group! But wonderful that now we can share in the sadness and that their voices ARE being heard here and there. Think of all the cultures that have become extinct before their wisdom could be passed on or even heard.
Yes, their voices are being heard more now. Even so the author reflects on hope arising from the ongoing presence of the wisdom keepers. I have seen much more respect from the general American public whenever Indigenous voices are held up by media, and films are being made by native artists as well as a plethora of wonderful literature by many excellent native authors. It all builds toward reason and wisdom prevailing at some point. Let’s hope its in time.
