On the Road: Shawnee Storytelling Tour
Learn Shawnee folklore with Native American storyteller Wehyehpihehrsehnhwah on the Shawnee Storytelling Hike.
I consider myself a culturalist because I don't have that many stories. I have just the stories my grandfather taught me. The story for the Shawnee about how music came into being was that the wind, which is known as wawiasichkonne, was dancing through the trees. Everything in this world—in the forest but everything everywhere—has life and has a spirit. It has a value. Each person is a unique gift from the Creator, and that they're beautiful and that they're sacred. The most important thing for the Shawnees is not how much you possess but how much you give away. I'm always remembering about the gift that these people have given.
