Turtle Island Tales, LLC

Turtle Island Tales is a place to find wellness and healing for you, your family, and your community. It is based on two multi-site scientific studies of home-based materials promoting family wellness for American Indian families with young children. It is also based on the seven grandfather teachings and the wisdom of our many grandmother advisers.  Each section contains different information. There are recipes and games that are fun and healthy to use anytime. We are developing home-based kits to help children get excited about the journey with things such as stickers, coloring and story books, trading cards, and small puppets, and short films for kids. This will include 12 separate wellness lessons for a year-long wellness journey and seven grandfather teachings that instill lifelong concepts for healthy spirits.
