    The power of the paddle

    The power of the paddle

    Grab your paddles and hop in our canoe as we learn how canoeing does more than bring us closer to nature. This week Rosanna takes us on a journey across Turtle Island to learn how the canoe connects us to our past and carries knowledge into the future.

    The sights and sounds of the river can teach language and culture and heal intergenerational trauma. This week Rosanna speaks with paddlers and paddling enthusiasts about how canoes are more than objects for transportation, they carry stories and our cultures through time.

taught me so much

truly an amazing podcast, Falen Johnson was a fantastic host and so is Rosanna Deerchild. Love the different topics, but can get a bit repetitive at times. Bring on the more unique formats!
