The Custodian

About

"When you are the oldest in the whole village, even the elders bow to listen to your wise counsel. Here is a story of an elder who has outlived his peers and is the last custodian of history. The history of not only his family but that of many in his village. 10 decades later, his records of events in the past, are not marked by dates on a calendar, but of the floods of a certain time, a drought that ravaged the area, a time when there was a bounty harvest and his livestock thrived or when he saw the first white man. As seen here, Ole Ramu (right) is seen in one of many such conversations with younger elders whose reverence is undeniable as they seek his advice and blessing. It is through these conversations that the custodian passes down the records of information to keep his legacy, and that of those who have gone before him, alive. "
