As in, what age is someone officially an elder, to you? Is it just anyone who's older than you? Is it when they say, themselves, they're an elder? Or, 50 on up? 60 on up? 90 on up? :lol:

Who taught you this? I didn't really learn what it meant for someone to be an elder until I was in my teens. My grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles, taught me. :D Respect yo elders, as they're all my elders.

Personally, anyone at least 7 years my senior. Communally, anyone over the age of 49 who has lived at least 7 cycles of 7 years and has served or is serving on or has served in a Council leadership position. This I was taught by my parents, other Elders, and myself.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
