Canyon Echoes is pleased to present, The Elders Project, a collection of interviews with an older generation that serve as excerpts of history. Over Winter Break, our staff members sat down to interview grandparents, parents, and friends, asking questions about their life and how they came to be the person they are. Staff members also took a selfie with their “elder” and if a selfie couldn’t be taken, they asked their elder for a picture from his or her youth.

Please visit The Elders Project page to hear stories from the past, from the people who have touched our lives the most.
