They've Got a Lot to Tell

Register-Pajaronian (Watsonville, CA) , July 23, 2004


The 9th Annual Indian Canyon California Indian Storytelling Festival is featuring well-known American Indian storytellers from various tribes who will tell both traditional and contemporary stories. The organizers expect between 150 and 200 American Indians, representing up to 30 tribes.

Russell Imrie, a Mohawk whose tribe hails from Montreal, is a lifelong Santa Cruz resident who is helping to organize and publicize the event. Imrie said the stories are similar to Aesop's Fables or fairytales:

"The stories are lessons. They're about love, they're about stealing, they're about always respecting your parents. There's hundreds and thousands of individual stories, and the storytellers will sit there and they will tell the stories that they think are appropriate."
