Te'skennongweronne : Greetings - Yves Sioui Durand

Top of page

In the words of Yves Sioui Durand, te’skennongweronne is “an old ceremonial and ritual saying to honour and thank someone. The meaning of ‘come again’ is: I come to you because I remember. I have kept that memory of ‘how it should be done,’ but more importantly, I do and do again what has been passed down to me; that which forges ties from generation to generation—and if I do that, it is thanks to you. By honouring and thanking you, I too am forging the ties that ‘make us who we are.’”
