Description of Activity
Have a volunteer read the quotation while another extinguishes the chalice:
It's a very Aboriginal thing to do, to give younger people greater responsibilities within the community as they become able to take those responsibilities on. It is a culturally appropriate transfer of roles that involves respect in both directions... from the younger to the older and the older to the younger. - Jackie Huggins, author, historian and human rights activist
