I speak to Elders as Knowledge Keepers as I believe they are the one’s that pass on tradition, culture and learning to us as children, our children and our children’s children. The passing on of knowledge is important because not all learned comes from reading or hearing. Handing down tradition is very much experiential in nature, to teach by doing integrates all the five senses. My fortune in learning Metis Culture was from my father, unfortunately I did not have the opportunity like my cousins, to learn from my Metis Grandmother. So my learning as I see it while incomplete is not over as I have other Metis Elders to help teach me. We all need to give respect to our Elders to preserve the knowledge, as those before them give us, so we too can share what we learn. I give thanks to all Knowledge Keepers.
