As I Remember It: Teachings (Ɂəms tɑɁɑw) from the Life of a Sliammon Elder

Sharing the teachings

On using life experience stories to share teachings see Jo-Ann Archibald, Indigenous Storywork: Educating the Heart, Mind, Body and Spirit (Vancouver: UBC Press, 2008), 112-14; Julie Cruikshank, Angela Sidney, Kitty Smith, and Annie Ned, Life Lived Like a Story: Life Stories of Three Yukon Native Elders (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1990), 165; and Margaret Elizabeth Kovach, Indigenous Methodologies: Characteristics, Conversations, and Contexts (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2010), 95. For a wonderfully creative example, see John Borrows, Drawing Out Law: A Spirit’s Guide (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2010).
