This story has its beginnings on a day long ago when Earth rolled and heaved, and rocks fell like rain.
Thus began what some today would call a “migration” of The Walking People. Leaderless and bereft of the shared knowledge of tradition, they set off on their journey. Their story is the story of how one particular group of human beings was able to start anew - to learn through difficulty and changing circumstance to prosper as a Whole People. This story of survival through sweeping change has important messages for all those who value learning today.
Paula Underwood (1932-2000) was the fifth generation of her family to hold responsibility for this ancient tradition. Paula said, "It is the history of my ancestors, who - in a direct line down uncounted generations - never forgot to remember." Her instructions were to record all she had learned in English to be given as a gift to all Earth's Children.
