As you move your mouse over the colored portions of the turtle, you will see an Elder’s name and the topic he/she speaks about. Clicking on the spot will take you to a YouTube video of the topic. These are clips from full sessions. There is a link in the text below the YouTube video for each to the full session.

While oral tradition can be transcribed and read, doing so leaves out the involvement of listening. It is good to hear where the words come from. It is good to hear stories and testimonies over and over again and take them into your heart. So sojourn a while with these ones bridging from the past to a more sustainable and spirit-filled future, end your session with the closing drum song, letting yourself vibrate with gratitude and resolve to live better on this earth, say miigwech, and go on with your day.
