Related to this: I’ve always loved the phrase “speaker for the dead,” though it’s been so many years since I read that book that I’ve forgotten its exact meaning there. We should have a Speaker for the Dead, who speaks in community about the needs of ancestors. And a Speaker for the Squirrels, who is familiar with their needs. Speakers for all sorts of beings, who give them a voice when matters that might affect them are taken up for decision.
