Storytelling is Sacred: Melvin
I guess for me as a storyteller, I view myself as a young person telling these stories, because a lot of time traditionally, it was told by the elders and grandfathers and the grandmothers who passed these stories on to our children and now a lot of that from the institutions with in our schools the elders are no longer there.
So we have to take on that responsibility of that sacred act of telling these stories; and, yes, this is a sacred act of telling, but at the same time we have to go back and realize the origin, that these were our grandparents and grandfather's sacred act through are life time of learning.
