Experience authentic Native American Pow Wow songs with Brother Granite. Over a decade of drumming and story-telling at Pow Wows, fairs, elementary schools, libraries and adult care centers makes this an educational and entertaining program. This program will teach about traditional Pow Wow Regalia and explain each song performed during the program. What makes this program extra special is it offers traditional Inter-Tribal Storytelling. Brother Granite brings the Native American stories alive with his animated use of body-language, special voice inflection and interaction with the audience. Brother Granite will show sacred items during the program and some audience participation will be encouraged. 90 min
Storytelling is part of many magical traditions, from the earliest times. If we’re part of a reconstructed tradition, we draw much of our knowledge from stories which were eventually written down, rather than recorded liturgy and scripture. Does the art still have a place in our modern era of books, TV, movies, and social media? Do our modern entertainment forms count as storytelling? Our panelists will discuss these questions and share what role the art plays in their magical practice.
