Cherokee Stories and Culture with Freeman Owle
September 18, 2021
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Earl Scruggs Center
Join us on Saturday, September 18, for a storytelling program featuring Freeman Owle, who will engage adults and children with a mix of history, culture, and ancient Cherokee stories passed down from generation to generation.
Owle, a professional storyteller, artist, and educator, has shared Cherokee history and culture throughout the Southeast for more than twenty years. An elder in the Cherokee tribe, Owle also serves on the Board of Directors of the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual. He is one of the featured storytellers in the book Living Stories of the Cherokee, and he also appears in the video documentary The Principal People, which aired on public television in North Carolina, South Carolina and Kentucky.
This project is made possible by funding from North Carolina Humanities, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
