These inspirational biographies of 12 Native elders pass along invaluable stories and wisdom. In indigenous cultures, elders serve as a bridge across time: they are connected to the past, they live in the present, and they offer wisdom for the future. In these fascinating biographical essays, 12 First Nation and Native American elders share stories from their lives and tell what it was like to live in a time before television, video games, or cell phones. Their stories explain how their humble childhoods shaped the adults they became and the lessons they share as elders. A glossary of terms found in the chapters is included, along with resources for discovering more information about each elder.
