Quote of the Day from Teaching Truly

Quotes from Teaching Truly: A Curriculum to Indigenize Mainstream Education by Four Arrows (Don Trent Jacobs)

Relationship is demonstrated by exercising K’e (a Navajo tradition of acknowledging to one another how we are related by clan and that “my relations are my medicine”), by doing one’s best to communicate clearly and empathetically with others, and by helping the group you are working with to progress toward a worth-while goal. The value of relationship, we believe, is similar to Jesus’ teaching to “love thy neighbor as yourself.” At its highest level of application in one’s life, relationship involves recognizing that other persons or beings are not separate from, but are interconnected with, oneself as part of the same whole.” ~ Teaching Truly Pg 55
