      Coast Salish Storytelling

      Join us for an afternoon of Native American Storytelling in our Great Hall.  Gain insight into the art and culture of Coast Salish communities as you enjoy the stories of Western Washington tribes as told by Native American artist, storyteller, and educator, Roger Fernandes.    The Artist: Roger Fernandes, or Kawasa, is a member of the Lower Elwha Band of the S’Klallam Indians from the Port Angeles, Washington area.  Roger started storytelling with simple legends, then moved into telling myths, creation stories, flood stories, and hero stories. In sharing these types of stories Native people can teach non-Natives about the aspects of their culture that go beyond food, shelter, and clothing. These stories actually define the culture of the tellers. Roger is involved in art organizations and initiatives by and for Native American artists. He won a folklife award from the Washington Arts Commission for his work in teaching about Coast Salish art. He also has a degree in Native American Studies from the Evergreen State College. Thanks to special funding from the Bainbridge Community Foundation, tickets to this event are free!  Thank you BCF for this generous grant.
