Traditional Storytelling


The passing on of stories from the ancient times is a key component of Native oral tradition. The RiverWinds enjoy telling traditional stories of ancient days. Some of them are purely entertaining but many tell what we can learn from nature and also valuable lessons for character-building.

“Tell me the facts and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in heart forever.” – Native Proverb 

Medicinal Herbs


"Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock." ~ Chief  Yellow Lark, Lakota 1887

Herbal medicine is an integral component of past, present and future indigenous ways. Dr. Laralyn RiverWind is a Doctor of Naturopathy and a Master Herbalist. Having begun her studies under her father as a youth and still continuing to learn from experts worldwide, she is happy to share her knowledge of plant medicine with others in lectures and conferences.

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children" Native Proverb

Archaeology & History


 The past is still with us, waiting to be consulted of her wisdom; hoping that we will learn her rich lessons for a better future. The RiverWinds have a pasion for history and archaeology and enjoy sharing what they know with others and learning from those who likewise have a heart for exchange of knowledge.

"Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand." ~ Native Proverb
