11th Moon Storytelling Event Set for Saturday

The Natchez Democrat (Natchez, MI) , January 25, 2008


On Saturday afternoon the mysteries of the universe will be revealed at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians. Tom War Cloud, an Arapaho and Toltec Indian, will tell the tale of why the crow is black and the story of the creation of the Earth.

War Cloud and other storytellers will gather on Saturday at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians for the 11th Moon Storytelling event. Historian Rebecca Anderson said the 11th Moon Storytelling event is a time for cultural learning and fun.

“It’s just a really good time,” she said.

Anderson said the storytelling event is a great educational family activity which centers around the stories and oral traditions of the Native Americans. The afternoon’s events will feature stories from several different storytellers, one of whom normally brings along an alligator, Anderson said.

And while the event is meant for fun and education, War Cloud said the afternoon focuses on one fundamental theme that all cultures share — their stories.

“Everyone has their story,” he said. “All cultures share the history of their origins.”
