The art of Native American storytelling has been passed down for thousands of years. They give life and meaning to everything in the universe and offer lessons of love, courage, kindness, respect, humility, truth, and wisdom. The stories teach us the skills to interact with our environment as a living being and codify those teachings within our own existence.
