"Storytelling is what preserved our past, maintains our present and is the key to our future”   Perry Ground

 

The Family Stage is more than a place to play; it will be a place where the audience will experience Indigenous Ways of Knowing with expressive Native American Culture through interactive, land-based workshops, storytelling and teachings by well-respected local knowledge keepers in their disciplines. Visitors will explore, discover and be part of the unique culture, traditions, and passed-down heritage of the People of Turtle Island at The Family Stage every Saturday.
