CBC Radio One The Legend of Nanabozho

CBC Radio One The Legend of Nanabozho

A beautiful woman is pushed off the moon and falls into a lake on Earth. There, people greet her, build her a wigwam, and seek out her advice. This is the story of Nokomis, her daughter Winona, and Winona's son Nanabozho. It's one of thousands of legends Indigenous peoples in Canada have passed down the generations to tell stories about tribal ancestors and to teach children how to behave. Storyteller Alanis Obamsawin relates the Ojibwa legend for CBC Radio.
