TRIBAL AMERICAN ORAL TRADITION
"Telling a story is like pulling a haze away from a mountain. For tribal American people, the storyteller is a consecrated person who must remain both humble enough to carry ancient tales accurately and honestly and wise enough to put life into the way the story is told. It is in stories that perceptions are made clear, where the haze in burned away.
When a person has a chance to hear a story, they have the opportunity to learn by performing the act of listening carefully. That is the first thing necessary; the ability to hear and accept well, and someday in the course of hearing many stories, to understand and use the stories, to become a richer and more full human being from taking in all the gifts the story has to give."
