You might not notice at first what’s missing in this image of the world you want to live in. Think about it as you read the Story we will share with you now, to show you what Indigenous-led environmental projects look like.
Story is the original distance learning opportunity. But it’s far more powerful, and a lot more enjoyable, than any internet classroom. That’s why movies and television programs are so important to so many people. Sacred Story, in particular, permits us to meet and come to know people, places, and events far from our own daily lives, and to learn from those experiences as if we had been there ourselves.
The Story told here was given to the writer especially for you. The Deer of the Grandmother’s Dream you will meet invites you through the fence between your world and ours. She, and we, are holding up the bottom strand of wire for you to slip under it. Let me dust the pine needles off your jeans as you stand up. . . And now, come with me into a Story that is all about What Comes Through the Fence.
(This time, there’s no link to take you back to the main IKhana Fund page. Just come on through the fence, instead. You know you want to.)
