"Turtle Learns to Fly" by Dovie Thomason on Voices of the Animal People (12:29) One of the many reasons to love Dovie Thomason is that she is never afraid to tell stories that come from her indigenous background and today’s story “Turtle Learns to Fly” is no different. In this tale from the Lakota people, Turtle wants to fly south with the birds for winter but has to learn to keep his mouth shut in order to do so. This adventure is from a collection of stories called Voices of the Animal People.
