Grandmother Red Leaf, a Cherokee Elder, and Uncle Bob Randall, an Aborigine Elder, combined forces last Saturday, October 23, and presented a day of wisdom at Laughing Waters.
Though their cultures have existed for centuries on opposite sides of
the planet, it was inspiring to see and hear how similar their worldviews are. As
evidenced by their names, both cultures place great emphasis on family relationships. In fact, families are considered to consist of everyone in the tribe or clan. Uncle Bob said that he didn’ t know who his real mother was until he was grown because all of her sisters were mothers to him.
