Northwest Heritage Resources is pleased to present a performance of Native American storytelling by Roger Fernandes in Shoreline on Friday, April 1, 2016. The event is in partnership with the Briarcrest Neighborhood Association. The performance is scheduled for 7:00pm at the Fircrest Chapel, 15230 15th Ave NE in Shoreline.
The event will feature well-known Native American storyteller Roger Fernandes, who is an enrolled member of the Lower Elwha Band of S’Klallam Indians, a Washington state tribe from the Olympic Peninsula.
He shares the myths and legends of Coast Salish tribes across the region, looks at the “teachings” within those stories and examines their relevance to the modern life of indigenous people.
A suggested donation of $5 per person over 18 can be made at the door. Directions to Fircrest Chapel are as follows: Enter Fircrest grounds at 155th and 15th Ave NE, turn left and go to stop sign. Take first right and follow to Chapel parking. The brick building with the white steeple is the Fircrest Chapel.
Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information call 206-306-1181 or email.
The April 1st event is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and Northwest Heritage Resources.
