“This individual, this someone called Nanabush was the one that named the things as he travelled. There are many legends talking about the trees and shrubs and the places where these things would grow. The creator was the provider for everything that was growing on the land………. This legend does not end, only the people will forget what the legend is.” From interview with elder Abogooshish and elder translators of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake done in 2018 In the 17th century, European explorers and traders discovered Algonquins as a well-established society that controlled the Ottawa River. In fact, “If other people wanted to use the river, we have historical reports where Algonquin people used to charge a toll at Morrison Island for other people to use our territory. There was a vast trade network in this area for many thousands of years, a trade network between our nations. We had an economy long before the arrival of the Europeans. Algonquin Anishinaabe emerge from a rich historical legacy deep within the Ottawa River water-shed. A job mapping early canoe routes lead to an offer to come work with the Algonquins. Thus began a journey bringing together, through research, the legends and legacies of the Algonquin people. Living on a 425-acre wilderness property, a researcher of wolves and a passion for 22 huskies and a dog-sledding business, the legend continues. Join us Thursday October 14 Live at 8 PM, as we explore a fascinating life of wolves, dog-sledding and legends of the Algonquin Indigenous Peoples.
Things Worth Considering
Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time/8 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers.
Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering.
