Continent Poster – African

Our fifth poster for Season 1 is centered around the African Continent. It was my great joy to research and explore this continent with Martin Nuza, an incredible and experienced storyteller. We found this part of the world diverse and captivating, filled with intriguing wildlife, exquisite landscapes, spiritual energy, ancient history and unique cultures.

Episode 1, Lesadi & Her Star, is set in Kenya. There’s a reason this is the first Moon Drake episode… I wrote it in honor of my Kenyan daughter, Rose Atwenga, as I wanted to share her beautiful heritage! Our story unfolds with Lesadi, a Kenyan girl whose father has died. Her cruel uncle forces her to help him illegally poach lions and cheetah cubs. Through this adventure Lesadi is faced with a dangerous choice but discovers an unexpected hero.

Episode 10, Ali & His Dream, by Martin Nuza, takes place in Cairo, Egypt. Ali and his father are tour guides to the ancient pyramids. One night, the boy has a dream that takes him to another time and place and fills him with great joy. But when he awakens, something is missing from his life and his spirit, and he must do everything he can to find it.

All of our Moon Drake stories embrace human conflicts, the human spirit, and/or specific challenges impacting the earth. They show a diverse and glorious world, painting a picture of truth and love that gathers us all together as One. This is our quest.

IN THE GLOW OF THE MOON!

Ali & His Dream

By Martin Nuza – Moon Drake writer, Martin Nuza, creates a story for Episode 1.10 that ignites our imagination and weaves a life of intrigue for this 13-year-old boy who lives in Cairo, Egypt.

“Ali & His Dream” will inspire young hearts, for it takes us into another world; a place of wonder. It’s a world that teaches Ali about love. And when he awakens he also learns about hope.

In every Moon Drake episode we address a conflict, whether it be environmental, spiritual or a human issue or choice. We see modern or ancient characters and landmarks, regalia and traditions embedded in these compelling stories that draw children of the world together. And each story gives answers through the Indigenous wisdom of that place.

Martin is a truly gifted storyteller. Each of his three episodes (with more to come) are special and filled with wise gems sparkling in the sun. Thank you, brother!
