Overview

Deep in the heart of sub-Saharan Africa lies Sibooli Village, completely isolated from the modern technological era and rich in the oral traditions of storytelling, witchcraft, and medicine men-n'gangas. The deepest part of Africa's soul is the village, and in the villages trees are given profound reverence. Trees are responsible for healing the mentally and physically ill, and serve as a source of medicine through their roots, bark and leaves, utilized by the n'gangas to heal. Trees tell the story of the Zambian people through a language that does not depend on words; trees withstand time. And while The Messages of Trees is not a scientific account of the culture of the Zambian people, it is intended to be experienced as both a cultural and spiritual journey, telling a truth of people, of the strength of human character, and of the eternity of love that suspends the weight of time.
