Grade 5 Hears from Native American Storytellers

Grade 5 students were visited by the Leaf Arrow Storytellers, part of Symphony Space's Native American Storytellers series. Joe Cross of the Caddo Indian Nation of Oklahoma and Donna Couteau Cross of the Sac and Fox Nation of Oklahoma told the children about the significance of the stories that embody the relationship between Native American people and nature. Sharing personal stories and possessions as part of their presentation, Donna and Joe incorporated authentic artifacts to bring their teachings and histories to life.
