Native American Stories of the Northeast with Ndakkina
June 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$15
We are pleased to host two storytelling sessions with the Ndakinna Education Center. Through the telling of Native legends people of all ages can be taught valuable lessons and be amused at the same time. These legends, combined with traditional drum songs and explanation of various native philosophies and the traditions they contain, can help give people a better understanding of native culture. They also offer refreshing new perspectives of our relationship with each other and the rest of creation. This program will appeal to all ages.
