Award-winning storyteller, recording artist, and author Dovie Thomason will captivate listeners with stories of the Native Americans on Tuesday, February 8, at 7 p.m. in the Marg Kallemeyn Theatre, Art and Communication Center.
Thomason has shared stories throughout North America and overseas. She has been a featured storyteller with NASA and Indian education programs on reservations; Shakespeare’s “Globe Theatre”; NPR’s “Living on Earth” and the BBC’s “My Century”; cross-community programs in Northern Ireland; and powwows, conferences, schools, and libraries.
She was first captivated by the old Indian sories told by her Kiowa Apache and Lakota relatives. Since then, she has been on a lifelong path of sharing these stories to give people a clearer understanding of the cultures of the First Nations of North America.
Thomason is the winner of various awards, including the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, Storytelling World Honors Award, and the ALA Notable Recording Award
The annual storytelling event, sponsored by Trinity’s Cultural Affairs Committee, is free and open to the public. For more information, call 708.597.3000.
