Tree Song

Interweaving Leanne Simpson’s poetics, song, and stories of the land, while honouring the oldest maple tree in this region of Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg Territory, “The Oldest Tree in the World” is a love song to the oldest sugar maple in the region. Take 5 minutes and enjoy this video, and how much a tree can mean in someone’s life.
