Wolves figure prominently in many American stories, playing roles that range from protective spirits to fierce hunters. The variety of stories we tell about these mysterious animals reveal our love/hate relationship with wolves.
Crit Callebs, a Cherokee traditional storyteller, will demonstrate this diversity during his presentation Ani-Wa’ya: Stories of the Wolf People at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13 at Central Washington University’s Museum of Culture and Environment. Callebs will share a variety of stories that feature wolves as main characters.
The event is held in conjunction with the museum’s exhibit Wolves in Washington State, which was organized by the Burke Museum, University of Washington, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
