|“As Elders, it is our place to show respect to our young people in order to gain respect.”|
|–Grace Azak, NISGA’A|
|The attitude of our leaders will be the attitude of the people. The attitude of the parents will be the attitude of the children. If respect is shown from above, respect will be developed below. If the Elders show respect, the younger people will be respectful. As above, so below. This happens because of interconnectedness. The heart of the Elders is connected to the heart of the youth.|
Great Spirit, in the fall season let me respect both the Elders and the youth.
