If this is Your Land, where are Your Stories?: Reimagining Home and Sacred Space
Stories give shape and meaning to people's sense of themselves as individuals, their cultures, their nations, and what is called "home." The stories we tell, whatever our ethnicity, race, or religion, both connect and separate us. If This Is Your Land, Where Are Your Stories? considers the hold that our stories--especially those about home--have on us and how we interact with others.
