Ancestral connection through folkways

We’ve talked about tracing ancestry through DNA, we’ve talked about non-linear ancestral time, and we’ve talked about ways to connect to your ancestry through pilgrimage and exploring the lands they came from or settled on. Now in this episode, let’s explore the ways we can connect to our ancestry through folkways—song, dance, story, and food of our ancestors.

“It’s through the speaking and passing down through the generations that we have been able to recall, remember, and reawaken these ancestral knowings.”


I would love to hear from you!

What are your folk traditions or what folk traditions are you starting to discover?


Credit for the phrase “be a good ancestor” goes to Arianna of Quw’utsun’ Made
