Dr. Bailey Phelps, a tribal member of the Cherokee Nation, will perform traditional stories from several American Indian tribal sources. Humor and wisdom mingle in tales of such characters as Raven, Coyote, Rabbit and more. The stories amuse and teach listeners of all ages.
For more than half a century, Dr. Bailey Phelps has pursued and practiced the “most ephemeral” art of live oral narrative. His extensive repertoire includes folktales and fables from around the world, as well as original stories ranging from hilarious to deeply moving. A tribal member of the Cherokee Nation, Bailey’s most requested program is “Tales from Tribal Nations”: traditional American Indian stories from many tribes, interspersed with Native flute music. He and his daughter are co-authors of “Storied Treasure,” a collection of original stories and poems designed for telling.
