Modern Story

Region: Plateau

Teaching: Wisdom

In this story, Bear shows wisdom as he listens to the world around him. The simplicity of the story serves to emphasize the importance of the lessons to be learned from the Sun, Water, Trees, Mother Earth, and Moon. These aspects of nature are personified to make concrete what they have to teach. The connections between listening and learning, and the resulting path to wisdom, are made explicit in Bear Listens.
