How do we remember someone or something? Memorials, monuments, gravestones, candles, statues, the written word, film, photography. Family stories and cultural folklore, told and retold to ensure the past is not forgotten.
Cave paintings, and inukshuks remind us. There was a television ad in Canada that showed an Inuit woman building an inukshuk out of stone and she told the onlooker “Now the people will know we were here”. Gone. But not forgotten.
