Protocol. "Many cultures in the North have the Winter protocol. The word has gotten out to educators and many others that this is a respectful rule to observe. In recent years many Indian educators and cultural experts have sought to circumvent the protocol for what they see is an "emergency situation" in Indian Country. The only chance many Indian kids can hear these stories is in summer enrichment programs (where it has been shown that Indian kids benefit). Some elders and cultural experts have exceptions to the protocol if its for learning purposes (and hooray for them for looking at the big picture and the long term instead of insisting on a traditional interpretation.) And there is an emergency in regards to youth in Indian country. If this flexibility in the "rules" can help, great." - C. Gawboy
