This Storytelling presentation is filled with traditional Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) legends that have been told for hundreds of years. These stories teach about the beliefs, customs, and history of the Haudenosaunee people. The Storyteller will bring the stories to life through vivid descriptions, his rhythmic voice, and a VERY active stage presence. These stories become ‘interactive’ as Perry is known to include audience members in the stories. Storytelling is an important part of traditional Haudenosaunee culture but this program is also filled with historical information, discussion about the art of storytelling, other elements of Haudenosaunee culture and LOTS of humor. Audiences, young and old, will find this presentation captivating, highly entertaining yet very educational.

Perry Ground is a Turtle Clan member of the Onondaga Nation of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy. Perry has been a storyteller and educator for over 25 years and enjoys working with people of all ages to teach about the history & culture of Native Peoples. His presentations are lively, engaging, inclusive and filled with cultural and historical information that audiences young and old will enjoy.

This program is funded in Memory of Lawrence Dye by Bill & Sandra Allis, Marie Willer, Stella Slaight, Warren Emerson, and Carol Margeson.
