Native American people tell sacred stories as a way of keeping coherence in culture. The stories become a foundation of shared understanding of the general nature of life upon which their societies are built. Native American drums, shakers and flutes are often used to enhance the delivery of the story. Stories contain wisdom and hope, and shape societies in profound ways.
Noodin will begin with the story of the Seven Spirits that appeared on the waters of the east coast that recalls each of the seven fires or Spirits and the message each presented. Reflections, sharing and dialogue will follow.
Noodin is an advocate of traditional living and natural spirit teachings. Topics address concerns to do with wellness and balance in life. A student of native teachings from Ojibwe Elders, Algonquin language based people, living throughout the Great Lakes Region of the US and Canada. The audiences for my presentations vary from youth to elderly.
