Traditional Stories of the Animals with Grandmother Nancy Andry

Join us at Rowanwood Farm for a powerful afternoon of story-telling with Grandmother Nancy. She will be sharing the traditional stories of the animals and will discuss where the stories originate and why they are used for teaching.

From Grandmother Nancy: "I was not born on a reservation and I hold no tribal card, but I have followed the red road since my early childhood. I sought out elders who would teach me. My first two teachers where Lakota, one an author, one a medicine man. I was adopted by my Ojibway sister, also a medicine woman, and then by a Mickmik grandmother. I have permission to pour lodges since 1991. I have served as a facilitator for native woman's circle in federal prison 17 years. I am a Sundancer, a pipe carrier and an elder and grandmother in my communities in Canada. I have instructions to bring out and share certain teachings. "

$20 per person, advanced registration required by calling (203) 270-8346

Class will be held in the teepee
