AAS-DFC Jan. 8 meeting features speakers Lance and Eric Polingyouma

CAVE CREEK – Imagine life without our modern means of communication (smart phone, Internet, television, or printed media). Next, remove written language as a further means of communication and the impact on culture/society is rather dramatic. Under such circumstances, oral stories and experiences fill a large void in one’s existence and becomes a foundation for traditions or creating cultural norms. The evolution of these oral histories often teaches people to become respectful, value nature’s yields, admire hard work and other standards that we may recall from renditions about earlier pioneer times in America. These types of values still exist today as the strong foundation for the Hopi way of life.
