Example text

Each time is different, but it does not mean that there is an impenetrable wall because of that difference. In a Seneca story that explains the origins of stories about the past, an old man from the world of the ancients comes to visit a boy who is hunting birds. He explains that the boy must come back to the same place by a large rock every night to hear the stories. Every night the boy returns and brings with him more and more people to listen until there is a great crowd. Ostensibly, some of the people have arrived at different times but they are nonetheless all part of the assembled crowd.

Continuity without separating gaps is central to this view of history. The type of story discussed here is only one of the many different kinds of historical narratives that form part of Native conceptualizations of history. They provide the elements of how the world is structured; others tell of actual living people, movements, and interactions. In Native perceptions of history as continually moving continuities, oral traditions are ideally suited to recording and recounting these histories. During the diplomacy of the seventeenth century, Rotinonhsyonni and other Native peoples used councils to recount and continually update histories of interactions between nations (Druke 1987, 37-9).

In a sense, Native cultures with their particular conceptualization of difference solved this problem of communication across different cultures a long time ago. One of the strengths of a 'writing' system without words is that it can confer concepts and information without the participants having to share the same spoken language. Elizabeth Hill Boone questions the idea that indigenous cultures in North America did not have 'true writing,' pointing out that phonetical 'visual speech' (that is, alphabetical writing) is not superior to other forms of visual communication.
