Based on the teachings of Kenneth Little Hawk, the renowned Mi’Kmaw First Nation storyteller, this book uses stories to explain how to tell stories. Each of the practical skills needed for storytelling is clearly illustrated through relevant stories from native tribes—“What the Fire Taught Us” teaches special effects, “Our Many Children” shows voice modulation, and “Little Thunder’s Wedding” offers techniques for formal stories. Business people looking to enhance their public speaking, librarians wanting to enliven children’s programs, and teachers trying to instill a love of story in their students will find the entertaining and educative methods in this guide both inspiring and effective.
