  • Peer Resources: Mentor Question Contest
    What s happening La Grotte de Niaux is a prehistoric cave located high in the Pyrenees in southern France After walking through the silent and womb like stillness a visitor emerges into a large domed space filled with ceiling paintings estimated to have been created somewhere between 12 000 and 9 000 BC While most of the paintings depict horses and bison there is one theme that is repeated in many places This painting shows a group of men taking children to what at that time was considered the edge or end of their physical world The men exhort the children to be brave and expand their reach beyond the borders of the present world Some believe that the origin of the term mentor comes from what has been loosely translated in these ancient depictions as men taking children on a tour Although Odin was the chief god in the Norse mythology at around 550 AD there was a small group of Vikings who pledged exclusive allegiance to Thor son of Odin and god of thunder the sky and fertility Thor had a reputation of being particularly fierce and brutal towards his enemies and so did his group of dedicated followers When plundering a village or settlement they would kill every man woman and child as well as any livestock that they couldn t eat or carry away However before executing their hapless victims these fierce brutes would choose one male child to become a member of their clan One of the older Vikings would be assigned to teach and train the boy in their ways and customs and in this manner the child would become one of the feared men of Thor The word mentor is believed to have originated from this bizarre relationship between the captured boy and his Viking custodian Thanks to Manie Bosman for researching this story Provide an Answer or Comment Your Name Your E Mail Message Security Code alt Speaker title Click to hear the code spoken View Other Answers or Comments for the Current Question Nia Varadalas from Winnipeg says Thanks for providing these interesting stories I particularly liked story number four Stephen Harper from Ottawa says Reading these stories has helped to refine my own storytelling Willliam Shatner from Montreal says These mentoring stories have helped me to go forth and prosper Pamela Anderson from Ladysmith says When my show was cancelled my recall of these stories boosted my spirit Jim Carrey from Newmarket says Eventhough I m the highest paid Canadian actor I remember my roots and why it s important to have a story to tell Neil Young from Winnipeg says I ve been telling stories through my music ever since I can remember and the ones I ve read here make me think of how important it is to have pure tone View Responses to Our Previous Questions What would you say was the key difference between a mentor and a coach View responses What was the most difficult
