Aadizookaan: The Sacred Essence of the Story
Anishanabeg-Ojibwe author, poet, storyteller and visual artist Anne Dunn inspired her daughter, Annie Humphrey to write poetry that eventually turned into songwriting. Annie's father taught her to play guitar. Together Mother and Daughter speak, tell, and sing of the human condition. Songs are woven in between the stories and stories contain wisdom to live by. If you are one who appreciates hearing truths from a perspective that follows natural law, then come and be enlightened!
"I think we live in very intense times. When the Earth runs out of breath, so will we. The plant nation will be the last to give up on us humans." -Annie
Dunn, 75, was born on the Red Lake Reservation, grew up on the Leech Lake Reservation and currently lives near Bemidji. “Fire in the Village” is her third book, a collection of 75 stories celebrating her 75th birthday. Her book includes stories she remembers and stories she has written — all stories “sent forth as little ambassadors in search of understanding and reconciliation.” -Anne
