Storyteller at Cahokia Mounds on Saturday

Native American storyteller Gene “One Crazy Raven” Tagaban will bring his unique mix of stories, music and dance to Collinsville for a 2 p.m. performance Saturday at the Cahokia Mounds Historic Site.

Tagaban tells stories that are designed not only to entertain, but also to teach and heal. With song and dance, he weaves such topics as the environment and health into stories from his own experience, his people (Tlingit/Cherokee) and historical events. The event is free, but a donation of $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, $2 for students and $15 for families is suggested. For more information, call 346-5160 or go to www.cahokiamounds.org.
