Video transcript: "Many indigenous people on Turtle Island, otherwise known as North America, practice oral traditions and storytelling as a practice for learning and teaching and carrying on knowledge. One of the reasons for this belief is, it is believed that it facilitates person-to-person communication and it sort of obviates any misconceptions or confusions.

This history is long and has been going on for millennia on Turtle Island. However, with the advent particularly of digitization and the looming crisis of apocalyptic, perhaps, climate change, many indigenous people have started making the move to share their knowledges with the rest of the world for the sake of the future generations."
