Society Oral Tradition Resolution

Cool news from society regarding cultures with oral traditions instead of / in addition to written documentation.

Oral Tradition Resolution

To further inclusion of cultural diversity in the SCA, the following Resolution was adopted by the

Board:

Whereas some historical cultures are based on oral traditions; and

Whereas some historical cultures lost historical documentation due to environmental

and human intervention; and

Whereas many historical cultures existed outside of the European sphere.

The Board of Directors does hereby direct all officers whose area of influence would

be naturally affected by this directive, to develop a protocol for the full recognition

and approval of aspects of cultures not based wholly on written documentation, but

sufficiently shown to be in existence during the period covered under SCA

guidelines.
