Winter Tales Concert: American Indian Storytelling

The Spurlock Museum invites everyone to its annual Winter Tales concert, a celebration of American Indian storytelling. The 2018 featured teller is SleepyEye LaFromboise of the Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota and Tonawanda Seneca tribes.

SleepyEye LaFromboise travels extensively, with his work centering on Native American youth empowerment through cultural and spiritual sustainment. His work also focuses on Native American cultural sensitivity and wellness training for organizations, tribes, and individuals. He has been a member of the United National Intertribal Youth, Inc. (UNITY) for over 20 years and is also the Fire Keeper for the organization. Through his empowerment lens, he applies storytelling through song, prayer, and teaching as the tool for all.

This family concert is free and no advanced reservations are required.
