Jerome Kills Small will present “Children Stories, Animal Stories and Traditional Lakota Stories” at Jensen Memorial Library on Monday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. This presentation is made possible by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment as part of the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau, and funded locally by the Jensen Memorial Library Foundation.
During the program, Kills Small tells children’s stories and animal stories that have been passed down for generations as part of the Lakota and Dakota Sioux traditions. Among the types of stories covered are iktomi (trickster tales) and ohunkanka (old legends). When speaking to adult audiences, Kills Small also analyzes the Native American storytelling tradition.
