Trickster Tales

The Coyote RoadZomo the RabbitNight Dancer
Sometimes serious, sometimes silly, trickster stories are always fun!

What is a trickster you say? Maybe you've heard a story with Br’er rabbit, Raven or Kokopelli and wondered why these figures are so wily. If not, then now is a good time to learn about these classic characters.

Tricksters play an important role in several legends and folk tales as they can be both a villain and a hero. In light of the National Folk Festival this month, come hear stories of these character’s exploits. We'll listen to some folk music, hear some stories and most of all, enjoy a couple of laughs.

As part of this event, learn how to make a spirit mask that you can wear. Who knows -- someone might think you are a trickster yourself!

Join us on Sunday, June 22 at 3 p.m. For ages 6 and older.
