From the deserts of the Southwest to the frozen tundra of the north, and all
across this great land there are stories - true stories of First Nations people whose lives have
been changed forever… who are following Jesus Christ without reservation. Don’t be fooled,
this is not some religious, feel-good program. This is real life. It’s raw, direct, and personal. If
you have ever wondered if there really is hope for something better, we invite you to listen to
Native American and First Nations people who really understand.
Oral Tradition… for centuries stories have been handed down from one generation to the next
in order to communicate and preserve the significant. In their telling, there is respect and
honor for those who speak. For those who listen, there is a stewardship – the freedom to
receive, embrace and pass on what they’ve heard. There are stories that should be told but
too often have been silenced… until now. These are stories of hope. In their telling, others
are strengthened to journey on.
The Storyteller presents Indigenous people sharing in their own words - the challenges, joys,
heartaches, and pain that they have walked through on this earth, and the hope and peace
they have found walking in close relationship with their Creator. Grandmother, grandfather,
mother, father, daughter and son – they all have a story of hope to tell. As each one shares,
we find shared experiences, common challenges, and genuine faith.
The Storyteller includes stories from Native American, Alaska Native, and Aboriginal people
from the US and Canada. (In Canada, the term Aboriginal includes three distinct groups: First
Nations people, the Métis, and the Inuit.)
These collective terms do not reflect the unique histories, languages, and cultures that are a
part of every tribe and nation in North America. Each nation has it’s own distinct story, as do
individuals within each nation. Some of these rich cultural and historical distinctives are
reflected as different ones share their personal stories.

Christians from these tribes and nations: Acoma Pueblo, Ahtna, Aleut, Arapaho, Assiniboine,

I’m not First Nation but it’s inspirational for me too. I once carried the many of the secrets these stories give testimony to.
