American Indian Legends
Native Storyteller
For thousands of years, before there were books, radios or televisions, Native Americans used legends to remember our past and teach our children about the future. In our program, these stories are still told by Cherokee Legend Keeper, Jackalene Crow. She brings to each audience a broad range of traditional legends from many different tribes. Recorded flute music and pow-wow drum songs provide a background for the spellbinding tales. The programs can be tailored to your individual audience from Preschool through adults.
Why Do They Call Us Indians?
Spirt Being
This program shares a refreshing look at the arrival of Europeans on the American continent from the perspective of the Native Americans. It traces the time before written history, through the tragedy of the Five Civilized Tribes and the Trail of Tears, to the modern success of "BINGO". The story is told with humor and understanding and is always followed by a lively session of questions and answers. The program is available with or without slides and is accompanied by music from the Smithsonian Wax Cylinder collection. At the conclusion of the program, the audience is invited to join the narrator in a traditional stomp dance. The program is for audiences from 4th grade to adult.
