Saturday, February 25, the extraordinary story-teller, naturalist and
author Michael Caduto joined members of the NALMC extended family
at the Northwood Town Hall (“Ho!” “Hey!”). In the
afternoon, in front of a back-drop mural of a birch bark Abenaki
dwelling, to the accompaniment of guitar and drum and turtle-shell
rattle, Michael told and sang, for the young people, wonderful
local Native American stories having to do with peoples’ and
animals’ relation with each other, and with the land. And after
a book signing and potluck supper he spoke with the adults, and
some children, about the natural life at the edges of rivers --
the riparian borders -- and how they are best maintained as habitats
for fish, plants, trees and animals. It was an outstanding and
exhilarating experience for us.
Thank you, Michael Caduto! Ho! Hey!
