Traditional Oral Story Telling

A big thanks to our partners with the Lumbee tribe for sharing some of their oral stories with us.

Native American stories are traditionally told by the grandparents to the children. The children then take those stories and pass them down through future generations. Please listen and share with your children as Ms. Gwen Locklear tells us the stories of “How Turtle Few South for the Winter,” “How Possum Got His Tail,” “Rabbit Wishes for Snow,” and “Turtle Races with Beaver.”
