Description: Winter solstice is upon us. Our seasonal wheel turns once again into a new season marked by the path of the sun and the moon. It is said that Grandfather Sun starts his return to Grandmother Moon on the Winter Solstice.
I am honored to have Craig Standing Bear, Storyteller, flute player, moccasin maker tell a story for our Winter time. Winter, in indigenous tribal life here in America, was a time to fix and mend, a time for stories. The Storyteller was valued and held a place of esteem. After all, he had the news, the gossip, and the tales to pass along from one tribe to the next. On the Winter solstice, we end autumn and gives thanks for her blessings. As our wheel turns to winter, enjoy an original story told by Craig honoring winter. The podcast is enhanced with original flute songs by Craig from his CD, Reflections. Contact Craig directly to purchase his CD: www.mohawkleathers.com
