Join us for one of the Museum’s most popular annual events, a concert of American Indian tales, told during the winter months, the traditional time of telling.

This year, our Winter Tales American Indian celebration has been expanded to three events. Our featured speaker/teller is Alex Mares. With an educational background in Anthropology and Sociology, Mr. Mares has served as a Park Ranger in Texas and New Mexico for over 28 years. This service included fifteen years as Lead Ranger at the world-renowned sacred site known as Hueco Tanks. He is a Certified Interpretive Guide through the National Association for Interpretation and is a traditional Winter Storyteller. Mr. Mares is of Diné (Navajo) and Mexicano descent.

Winter Tales concerts are sponsored by an endowment from Reginald and Gladys Laubin. No pre-event tickets are sold. Auditorium doors open 30 minutes before the concert.
