Loon’s Song – created and performed by Julie and Gustavo Boada

As the constellations move into their spring location, Grandfather Turtle waits with anticipation for the return of his beloved granddaughter, Loon. He remembers the Ojibwe stories he told her and some of the lessons they carry that he used to guild her as she matured.  The piece is told with hand and rod puppets. It touches on Ojibwe culture and loon biology.  Music by Jim Parker.
