Art of Storytelling: Featuring Kevin Noble Maillard (Mekusukey Band of the Seminole Nation)

Native American storytellers use the oral tradition to teach life lessons, tribal histories, and the nuance of languages. Such stories are an essential tool in passing knowledge from one generation to the next.

Kevin Noble Maillard (Mekusukey Band of the Seminole Nation) is originally from Oklahoma. A professor and journalist who regularly contributes to the New York Times, Maillard will read his award-winning debut book for youth, Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story.


This digital program will stream on the museum Facebook page, the YouTube channel, and the website. 


The program will be available on demand in February, and is made possible by the generous support of Con Edison.
