Puppet Show: The Earth on Turtle's Back
In this puppetry performance we honor the wonderful wisdom of the Native Iroquois people…
When the great tree of sky land is uprooted, Sky Woman falls through the hole left where the roots once had been…. the birds and the animals of the waters below must save her by bringing the earth up from the ocean depths.
