Joan's first storytelling album --'A long time ago...when animals and two-legged people all spoke the same language...' Here on what some call Turtle Island - and others call North America - traditional stories were told, teachings and histories passed mostly in the colder months of winter--and still are today. Bringing the varied landscape of the northwest to life, Ms. Henry and Gus Mancini weave a magical tapestry through the world of Raven, Coyote, and First Man & First Woman in this album co-produced by her 14-year-old son: A story of balance - Caribou comes to the People for food in the islands off Alaska -- but at what cost? (Aleut) Wolves and Bears meet as Coyote puts the stars in the sky. (Wasco) Coyote dreams of power and importance as he schemes to be first in the Giving of Names by Creator (Okanagan) Teacher and Trickster of the Northwest, Raven 'goes looking' and Brings the Moon out of it's hiding place for all the People. (Coast Salish)
