A description of the experience
Brian Keenan – Four Quarters of Light
As we were standing to leave, Debra gave me a handful of bones which she thought might be finger bones and some feathers. This was shaman stuff and I asked what they were for.
'You will know in time,' she said.
Then she asked Lena if she knew of any violent deaths that might have happened here long before Oneson was buried. Lena confided that the bones of a young child, a girl, had been found ‘way over there' and that many, many years ago, 'in older time', there was much fighting and killing.
I looked at Debra as Lena walked slowly a few feet in front of us.
'l knew it,' she whispered. 'l could feel lots of them way over there.'
