Author and conservationist Barry Babcock will present "The Teachings of the Seven Grandfathers" at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Northwoods Bank community room.

Babcock learned these traditional Native beliefs through his friendship with Larry Stillday, spiritual leader of Red Lake, who taught that all life is interconnected and interdependent.

Babcock will offer a different perspective on wildlife through these traditional native beliefs. He'll also have his book along, "Teachers in the Forest: Essays from the Last Wilderness in Mississippi Headwaters Country."

Organized by the Park Rapids Area League of Women Voters, the event commemorates Native American Heritage Month.

Shannon Geisen is editor of the Park Rapids Enterprise.
