On Friday, July 22, 2016, the St. Joseph Museum, 3406 Frederick Avenue, will host professional storyteller Ralph “Little Eagle” Williston, B.S., M.S. Williston, who is half Oklahoma Choctaw, will share many of the Native American stories that he has collected over the years with Museum guests.
During his career as a teacher, Williston traveled among the American Indian tribes sharing and collecting children’s stories. He later became a professional storyteller, capturing the imaginations of countless children and adults in school, camp, and church groups all over the United States. Now he has combined his stories with original art to create a series of children’s books to preserve Native American stories for future generations.
The storytelling will begin at 2:30 p.m. and the event is open to the public with no reservations necessary. Admission is free. Copies of Ralph “Little Eagle” Williston’s books will be available for purchase.
