Colville tribal member Dan Nanamkin drums to an audience of 50 people or so at Wenatchee River Institue's Red Barn on the evening of Dec. 16, 2021
Dan Nanamkin, presented at the Red Barn as part of its event series "Spirit of Giving – Stories of Connection to the Natural World" presented by the Wenatchee River Institute.
"'It’s a great honor and a great responsibility to talk about some very important things: creation stories,' said Nanamkin. 'Many times, I love to go to schools and share these stories' ... Nanamkin’s mom was the storyteller when he was very young and he remembers being captivated by the different stories she told him ... 'As a young boy, I was very inspired because these stories were just really inspirational and creative,' Nanamkin said. 'They inspire you to learn about our lands, learn about the animals and our sacred connection to all things. I wanted to hear more of these stories.'”

The power of sharing Native American history through storytelling!
Dan takes us back in time through performance and deep connection to his ancestral stories to hear passages passed down from generations before ~ stories of a Land that provided for its people and how the Native People nurtured it in response. Dan encourages schools to offer more accurate Native American culture and history into their curriculum, and moves us all to think about the Native Land we now call our home.
