Plains Speaking People: Dakota Stories for the Stage
I love hearing a great story being told by someone who knows how to deliver the goods.
The art and importance of storytelling has ricocheted through all cultures throughout history.
I was very excited to see the art form will be presented in full force locally thanks to Plains Speaking People: Dakota Stories for the Stage
From the Plains Speaking People website:
