Chanda Mama


At a community supper in Yellowknife, a young man expressed his pleasure in The Wausnoedeh Collective's reading-- he's not a mum, he's not indigenous, so he didn't expect to find the event as involving as he did. The key here is, i think, that mother's stories are human stories, and indigenous stories are human stories, and when we come together for storytelling, the vital connections spark up, and the separations crumble away.

I feel a lot of gratitude for all of the people that came together last week, the cascade of visiting and storyswaps: I am feeling very tender! With thanks for sharing life,

Joanne
