About Isa

- Elder Wisdom -

Many elders in the fifties taught that each of us was responsible for reporting any hardship, lack or trouble to the tribe.Each was responsible then in finding solutions to the problem. That was why all could call council, all could speak for self or if necessary for those who could not speak. If you don't have a council, create one. If you don't see problems that need help your not looking. Even if the problems are yours ask for help. Remember a council may not be able to solve every problem. However many minds can suggest many solutions.
