The search for truth is obviously an enormous subject that has been debated endlessly down the ages by plenty of wise – and not-so-wise – people. But the ability to distinguish or recognize truth is an essential ability that everyone can use on a daily basis.

children. America’s First People knew that observation, experience and practice were essential to prepare young tribe members to participate in
