Many moons ago, Indian children were taught by the "Old Ones" to see life in relationship to all things, including animals. Storytelling was used to teach the "Two-Leggeds" how to live in balance and harmony with each other — and the Natural world around them.

Within most Native American cultures, there are teachings that everything is interconnected. Hopefully, while visiting my online Story Lodge, you will find many different things of interest regarding the Native culture.

I've included lots of links, resources, and bits of information here, because I really wanted to make my website more than just about me. I wanted to provide YOU — my visitors — with an "information clearinghouse" on Native topics/issues.

Debra Morningstar

My goal is to offer up-to-date, culturally accurate resources to all who visit my site, and it's my hope that these same visitors will return often, once they discover that my site is chock-full of quality information about Native American culture.

I hope you enjoy the "journey."

She is available for schools, residencies, festivals, keynotes, workshops, libraries, museums, retreats, ... and more!
