Heritage: The Tie That Binds
Heritage reaches back in time to tell stories of our near and distant pasts, to describe our present and to foretell our future.
These stories are the threads that interweave memory, culture, place, and practice. As we listen and learn, gaining knowledge from elders and experiences, richer stories are told and cultures are described. A complex, interconnected world is revealed, as people and place are woven into a detailed tapestry of history and heritage.
