THE DESIGN & COLOUR STORY
Have you ever considered story as a source of wealth? Indigenous communities and people honour and protect our stories. To this day, many stories are only passed orally and not written anywhere. Richard Wagamese, an Ojibwe master storyteller explains the value of story better than we ever could in the following statement
“All that we are is story. From the moment we are born to the time we continue on our spirit journey, we are involved in the creation of the story of our time here. It is what we arrive with. It is all we leave behind. We are not the things we accumulate. We are not the things we deem important. We are story. All of us. What comes to matter then is the creation of the best possible story we can while we’re here: you, me, us, together. When we can do that and we take the time to share those stories with each other, we get bigger inside, we see each other, we recognize our kinship - we change the world one story at a time.”
