Raven Steals the Sun: Native American Eclipse Stories with Onondaga storyteller Perry Ground

11:00 am
Native People Hall

This story-filled presentation will share the beliefs, traditions, and protocols of several Native American tribes related to the Sun and Eclipse events. Tribes across North America have stories to explain these solar events and view them in many different ways—as a signal or a transformation, as sacred, and as a celebration. From the Cherokee to the Navajo to the Inuit to the Haudenosaunee, these traditional legends have been told for hundreds of years and continue to be important to Native American culture today. Onondaga storyteller Perry Ground will bring the stories to life. This interactive experience is fun for all ages.
