Video Excerpt

Audio Translation: I want to first start by saying that in my language, I spoke to you in Wyandot. It's better known as the Huron, the Huron Nation. Wyandot means "the ones who inhabit the islands, the Islanders". Our traditional oral history says that we come from your land, the North American Indian people. Indigenous People and our tradition say that when the turtle, the giant turtle, he merged from the water, we left our land in the south and we went to inhabit our Turtle Island. My nation went to inhabit the very heart of the Turtle Island, which is in the Great Lakes.
