Tucson Humanities Festival – 'A Life in Stories: Visions & Journeys in the Land of Mystery'

When: October 04, 2021 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Tucson Humanities Festival: A Life in Stories

Cherokee storyteller Writingbear learned his people's stories at his grandmother's knee, but it wasn't until after her passing, while recovering from a chronic illness, that he began to have visions and dreams which reawakened the values and stories instilled years before. Ever since, he's brought his stories to audiences at workshops, schools, colleges, museums, festivals and pow-wows. Writingbear will weave together stories, family heritage and personal anecdotes from decades as a storyteller traveling, living and working in Indian Country. With a special blessing from Miguel Flores, Jr.
