In my language, which is CREE,
the mind is called MOM TUNE AY
CHI KUN. MOM TUNE AY CHI KUN
is the sacred place inside each one of us
where no one else can go.
It is in this place that each one of us
can dream, imagine, fantasize, create
and, yes, even talk
to the grandfathers and grandmothers.
The thoughts and images that come
from this place are called
MOM TUNE AY CHI KUNA
which means wisdom
and they can be given to others
in stories, songs, dances and art
(Maria Campbell, ACHIMOONA).
