Navajo Winter Tale to Re-Story the Wolf: two evenings of storytelling in Sedona and Flagstaff Nov. 9-10
The Plan B Foundation to Save Wolves will sponsor a special two-city tour of the traditional Navajo winter story about leadership and the wisdom of the wolf (Mai Tso) told by gifted storyteller and folklorist Sunny Dooley, at The Collective in Sedona Nov. 9, Vista Hall, 7000 AZ-179, Sedona. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., storytelling begins at 6 p.m., and at the Museum of Northern Arizona Nov. 10, Branigar Hall, 3101 N Fort Valley Rd, Flagstaff. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and story telling begins at 7 p.m.
Dooley, a well-known and gifted Navajo storyteller, will tell the story in English, unfolding in rich and entertaining detail how two mammals, two birds and an instigator insect changed the world by bringing integrity to leadership and a voice to all the people.
Appropriate for all-ages, this Navajo tale shares culturally grounded lessons of leadership and demonstrates that nature is a powerful teacher for humankind.
Proceeds from both events will benefit the work of the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project.
