ANNOTATION

This guidebook outlines the process used by Larry Long in communities he calls Elders' Wisdom, Children's Song, Community Celebration of Place. The process involves working with young people to interview the elders in their community and turn the elders' wisdom into songs that are presented back to the community in a community celebration of place. The book both describes the process and presents activities for those that wish to replicate the process. The book also contains examples of songs written in communities across the USA. The references in the guidebook include references to the CDs documenting the work, songbooks, and videos.
