Sharing Stories, Sharing Songs

Across cultures and around the world, stories -- both spoken and sung -- are a powerful way to share ethnobiological knowledge.  It has been so from the beginning of time.   In this session, we invite story-tellers and singers to share stories and songs that highlight people's connection to their biological worlds.  Lessons learned about our developing relationships with other creatures, how the world works, and how to act respectfully and responsibly, are among the many themes that will run throughout this session.

Unlike other sessions (which will be limited to 15 minutes per presentation), story tellers and singers in this session will be given a 30 minute slot to share their stories and songs.
