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.
