How It has Happened is a wonderful CD of stories by Grandmother Twylah Hurd Nitsch, internationally famous and respected Elder of the Wolf Clan of the Seneca People. Told by Lee Nitsch her daughter-in-law, with additional flute, drum and rattle playing by her son, Bob Nitsch.
There are nine stories that tell how each Seneca Iroquois Clan – Hawk, Snipe, Beaver, Turtle, Wolf, Bear, Deer and Heron - received their names long ago. With a wonderful introductory tale, each story includes its special decree or wisdom teaching that reflects the medicine qualities of the Clan animal and the Clan’s special perspective on walking a pathway of harmony and peace. Beautifully created by Bob and Lee Nitsch who bring these delightful and valuable stories to life toward keeping the ancient teachings alive. Enjoyed by all ages.
