A Tale of Two Tribes/ Exploring Cultural Parallels between Jews and Indigenous Peoples
Very little is known about the significant interrelationships and exchanges of culture and knowledge between Jews and Indigenous peoples. In this session I will explore and share with you the common ground between us, from the love of orality and story, the significance of respect for our elders and tradition and the journey of survival through the act of re-envisioning and reclaiming our cultures anew. Using the construct of the Seder and the analogy of the four sons, I will weave a presentation that is designed to provoke insights and illuminate the connections and shared responsibilities between these two rich cultures.
