The Importance of Elders

Elders are highly respected in our communities as knowledge keepers, community supports and teachers. It is important to note, while all seniors are respected as people who may need extra care and attention, Elders (big-E) are gifted special honour for their service to their communities and as knowledge keepers. It is customary to have Elders offer prayers, open and close ceremonies, and provide teachings and knowledge (sometimes they may also be able to share in the Michif language).
