Experiencing mana as ancestral wind-work

In this paper, I relate how I was taught about and experienced mana in the forms of wind and weather behaviors. I highlight the role of personal and ancestral relationships in those experiences and describe some mana and mana-like phenomena (hereafter referred to simply as mana) so that personally lived experiences might move toward the center of the discourse about mana. I argue that by considering personal experiences of mana, we will better understand it.
