Tickets are available now for the 2014 Dan
Crowley Memorial Concert, sponsored by the Storytelling Section of the American Folklore Society, featuring Dovie Thomason in "Walking the Branching Path" on
Saturday, November 8, 8:00-9:00 pm at the Convention Center: Sweeney A/B.
Dovie Thomason is a noted professional storyteller of Kiowa
Apache, Lakota and Scottish lineage, who has worked extensively in the
intratribal worlds of reservation schools and pow-wows, and also in the
extra-tribal worlds of revival storytelling festivals, libraries, public
schools, and universities. As her stories are bound in a web of traditional obligations
and sacred responsibilities she has had to thread a complex path to maintain
the integrity and intentionality of her work. In this storytelling concert,
Dovie will tell a selection of her traditional tales, framed by reflections on
her sources and on the ethics of intratribal and extra-tribal
tradition-bearing in the contemporary world.
$15, $10 for Storytelling Section members. See the 2014 Annual Meeting in our online store to purchase tickets.
