Journey into Eldership

The communal lifestyle and ritual of the Cree aboriginal tribes played a key role in the lives of the two presenters of today's edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Edmonton Vol. 15). We hear from Elder Gilman Cardinal and Tashina Makokis, two members of the Cree tribe, separated by a generation. Gilman speaks of his childhood with the tribe, his adulthood outside of it, and his return through eldership. Tashina speaks on the importance of perpetuating the Cree's cultural memory. She discusses her role in bringing together the youth and elders of her community in an effort to preserve cultural traditions.
