Walking the Florida Lands and Sands: Meeting Florida Folk through Their Tales and Lore

November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Walking the Florida Lands and Sands: Meeting Florida Folk through Their Tales and Lore

Folktales, passed down from generation to generation, convey and preserve the cultural knowledge, beliefs, values, and customs of the cultures that they come from, like windows into each community. This presentation of Florida folk and their communities showcases how folk tales and folklore can tell a great deal about the values and views of a culture and serve as a means to understand one another. Admission and parking are free for this program. No registration is required.

An internationally celebrated storyteller, teaching artist, and Chautauqua scholar, Carrie Sue Ayvar is the recipient of multiple awards for service, leadership, and her dedication to the art of storytelling and education. Her bilingual blend of traditional, historical, and personal tales connect the people, languages, and cultures of Florida.

This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Clewiston Museum. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
