Robert Wapahi will tell traditional stories on Sunday at Mitchell Museum
EVANSTON, ILLINOIS—When Robert Wapahi introduces traditional Dakota stories, he begins with the words, “Back in the time when all things spoke,” which he says is the Native equivalent to “once upon a time.” His stories lead the listener to a world of adventure and serious reflection alike: hear about “The Creature on the Roof,” the adventures of two boys from different tribes, and the 20th century migration of American Indians to big cities such as Chicago.
Join community artist, veteran, elder, and storyteller Robert Wapahi (Dakota/Santee) for these and more traditional, historical, and true contemporary tales for all ages.
Mr. Wapahi’s presentation will be the final storytelling held in conjunction with the Mitchell Museum’s exhibit “Storytelling: Inspiring Traditions for Generations” closing January 16, 2015.
$10 members/$12 non-members/Tribal members free.
