Story Project: National Native American Month

I was honored to tell a story for The Story Project in Colorado Springs in May when the theme was ‘Mothers’. Four of us spoke on the topic. My story was whimsical; others were dramatic and heart wrenching.

This month The Story Project, in honor of National Native American Month, features four more storytellers—all Native Americans—who will tell true, personal stories. The next event is Sunday, Nov. 30, at 1 p.m. at Ivywild School with a live audience. The presentation also is broadcast on KRCC, 91.5 FM. If you can’t be there, stream it.
