Frequently Asked Questions
This was the excursion that I was waiting for the most because it is a origin story about the first people, the way that they lived, their technology developments, and the core beliefs about land and nature. It helped me to understand some of the current linguistics of the languages that exist in Africa and abroad. Being on the land, and experiencing the museum, felt very grounding and ceremonial. It also captures history outside of the modern world and deeply shares the implications for how we live sustainably on this year planet. I’d highly recommend this for people who enjoy meditation, grounding, history, and learning. Even the time in the vehicle before an after was fun. Lol
