    To give you more background: This digital story was created by Susie Store in three days at the Ancient Voices, Modern Tools tech training at Indigenous Language Institute (ILI). Ms. Store did all the drawings, learned to use Audacity (for audio input), GIMP (for adding color), MovieMaker for putting them all together. The apps are free and easy to use. ILI philosophy is to empower community language people/teachers/speakers to create their own culturally appropriate materials, and free accessible technology makes this possible.
