Oklahoma entertainers Princess Dancing Wolf and Cimarron Ken will open the series at the Depot with a special appearance at 10:30 am. Through storytelling and original songs, they will take us on an interactive journey of fresh appreciation for our Earth, nature and the elements, and the amazingly diverse ecosystems of Oklahoma, for a renewed sense of wonder! They recently appeared at the Norman Centennial Celebration, performing their new song and music video "Red Earth and Rose Rock". For more information, visit www.PrincessDancingWolf.com.
Sam McMichael, a longtime resident of the Apache community, will share his stories at 2:00 pm.. McMichael grew up in the rich storytelling tradition of Southwest Oklahoma, hearing tales of the early days of the state, tales of good times and bad times, tall tales, fish stories, hunting stories and brags. He has worked this wealth of material into the fabric of his own experiences and fashioned unique stories full of pathos, humor, and surprise. McMichael has traveled Oklahoma as a professional storyteller for the past twenty years spinning his yarns at schools, fairs, libraries, festivals and conventions.
This storytelling series is made possible in part by a grant from the Norman Arts Council.
