Note-A wonderful teaching tool when sharing stories and talking with children. I have been told it is especially helpful for those autistic and mentally challenged children while also teaching them a bit of Native culture. Native children learn early that each opinion deserves to be heard by everyone in the room at their time and not before, and this is carried through to their adulthood. Such a simple premise yet a wonderful practice.
We can all learn much from Native peoples, simple ways of living in respect to each other and the environment.
