The Art of Indigenous Storytelling
Telling stories is one of the most powerful means to influence, teach, transit, and inspire. What makes storytelling so effective for teaching us about ourselves and our communities? For starters, storytelling forges connections among people and between people. Stories share and instruct about our cultures, history, and values that unite us as indigenous people. When it comes to our nations, our communities, and our families, we understand instinctively that the stories we hold in common are an important part of what makes us who we are and who we will be.
