Beaver Chief – A Salish Perspective on Wellness

He discussed his heritage, the songs and stories that are part of the Shaker Indian Doctor tradition,  his collection of medicine songs on a cd and some of the differences between his culture and “settler” culture, such as concepts of land ownership.
