Winter Stories Event Is Coming

by John Aldrich

On January 27th at 5:00 p.m. ANE will again sponsor one of our yearly highlights - the Winter Stories event. Come and share in in evening meant to provide the urban equivalent of a favorite Navajo winter pastime. During the cold winter months, the Dine' people gather in their hogans to share stories and play games. In the process, important Navajo traditions and teachings are passed along from the Elders to the younger generations, and everyone has fun as well.

The warehouse will become a large hogan for the occasion, and a variety of local Native American talent will share their stories, songs and teachings.

There will also be food (another Navajo tradition) so your appetite will be satisfied in every way.  If you would like to bring something to add to the food selection, please call the warehouse at 801-474-0535 to let us know what you will be bringing.
