This wonderful comment by Wilf McDougal captured the spirit of the recent Elders Teaching event hosted by Vibrant Communities Calgary and St Mary’s University. Everyone was surprised by the number and diversity of people who took advantage of the opportunity to listen with friends and strangers to stories and teaching from Elders from Treaty 7 Nations.
The evening was marked by thoughtful questions, intense listening, generous sharing, laughter and hospitality. As the Elders made closing comments, they extended welcome to everyone to continue getting to know each other. There was sense that our relationship going forward can be energized by our commitment to the future, our shared enjoyment and care of each other and our home the earth.
