In February 2015, we lost two dear friends and colleagues of our Performing Turtle Island community - Michele Sereda and Lacy Morin-Desjarlais, along with Michael Green and Narcisse Blood.
The Turtle Island Song was written and performed to honour their lives.
Turtle Island Song
Turtle Island, land and water
We dance our journey home
Beneath the starry map
For those before, here, to come
The living earth our drum
We play on Turtle Island
