This is a collection of stories drawn from many different tribes of Native Americans. Although the different lifestyles of these varied peoples dictate widely different types of story, they are united by a common belief in the spiritual power of the natural world and the magic that inhabits all living things. Stars and animals speak, wizards and giants cast wicked spells and young heroes and heroines brave all dangers to come home safe in the end. The Story of Scarface, Ballplayer and the Wizard, White Feather, Feather Woman and the Morning Star, The Dun Horse, Waupee and the Birds, The Red Swan.
With flute, drums and other instruments, this troupe of storytellers, weave tribal stories about lessons of life. Each story has a meaning about aspects of growing in spirit. The listener is enlightened by tales of magic, star people, animals and birds in the natural world and otherwise. The stories teach the listener of the rewards of courage, gratitude, and love. Each had a different message within the story presented. This is the way the Elders taught the children.
I found listening to this type of presentation relaxing and entertaining. Easy to take in one or more at a session.
Great presentation !

I could really enjoy the actors. The voices were never too silly or overacting so even as an adult I could enjoy it. Wish it were twice as long!
