The past is the world out of which we have come, the multitude of events and experiences that have shaped our conscious selves and the social worlds we inhabit. To understand how and why we live as we do, we cannot avoid appealing to the past to explain how andwhy we got to be this way. (Cronon 2000, p. 4)
It is remembering and storytelling we care about, not the raw past, because only by being perennially resurrected in the mind of each ne generation does the past become meaningful. Only this does it become a living memory which in turn gives meaning to our present lives by reminding us ho we are–as individuals, as a state and nation, as a people. (Ibid., p. 13)
