Seriously Cozy Fun

Stories by the Fireside

Traditional Pueblo culture places great value on storytelling as a means of entertainment, education and community, with storyteller being a venerated role canonized in the playful storyteller sculptures found in galleries and homes across this region. This tradition is on full, living, cozy display at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center this month, with Stories by the Fireside, every Sundayfrom 5 to 6pm. All ages are welcome to attend these free hearthside storytelling presentations, some accompanied by hands-on crafts, and all replete with hot cocoa. This week's story comes from the book Wild Wisdom: Animal Stories of the Southwest, by Rae Ann Kumelos, and includes an animal stencil craft activity, using tissue paper. Only two dates are left this month, so head out on Dec. 23 or Dec. 30 for a cozy evening with the fam.
