Wilfred shares…”I have had the opportunity to meet and share with Indigenous People from all over the world and the thing that has made an impact in my thought processes is the understanding that ALL people have deep concepts of intellectual thought, capacity of intellectual discourse, unbounding common-sense and a shared belief/faith that ACAK (spirit) guides our interactions with everything”.
