Sat., October 27, 2012 – 7 to 8:30 p.m.
This unique cultural experience of Native American storytelling is offered by Ken Duncan, Sr., a full-blooded San Carlos Apache. In addition to being an acclaimed "storyteller," his talents include lecturer, flute player, cultural artist and founding director of "The Yellow Bird Dancers" – who were awarded "Culture Keepers of Arizona" in 2004.
Ken is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts and serves as a cultural consultant for many U.S. State Department Embassy tours. His gift of storytelling has resulted in his participation in festivals and museums throughout the world.
Native Americans first used verbal language, instead of written, to document their history, customs, rituals and legends. Ken's illustrative images of coyote, the night sky, and mother earth, express the beauty of Arizona's environment and legendary tales of the southwest.
This special evening event offers the opportunity to experience the beauty and essence of Native American culture through vivid expressions ... enhanced with humor and music, refreshments and desserts. This unique encounter may lead you to explore stories about your own family's history and culture.
