Tell Me A Story with Mary Moose
March 20 @ March 20, 2023 6:00 pm
The Bemidji Public Library, Beltrami County Historical Society, and the Cass Lake Library are honored to present the series Tell Me a Story-An Exploration of the Art of Storytelling. Join us as we welcome Arne Rennan, Brian Miller, Mary Moose, Joe Sutherland, and Kevin Kling throughout the month of March, live at the Bemidji Public Library and Beltrami History Center, and streaming at the Cass Lake Library.
In Ojibwe culture, storytelling is an important art and tradition. Winter, especially, is storytelling season. We are honored to welcome two storytellers to share these special stories in Ojibwe and English, Monday, March 20, at 6:00 p.m. at the Bemidji Public Library. Mary Moose is a first-language Ojibwe and Cree speaker from Nishnawbe-Aski Nation. She was raised in the bush where she learned Ojibwe knowledge and values. She and her son, Ogimaawap (Joe Sutherland), a storyteller and artist in his own right, dedicate their lives to passing on Ojibwe knowledge and values.
The art of storytelling and the sharing of knowledge is one of the most important things we do as humans. Not only do stories entertain and inform, but they also help to explain the world around us. Join us as we welcome a range of diverse storytellers throughout the month of March.
