MCTA: Cherokee Storyteller Joseph Stands With Many

Mountain City Traditional Arts Presents Cherokee Storyteller Joseph Stands With Many

Cherokee storyteller Joseph Stands With Many will present a program of traditional and interactive Cherokee storytelling, drumming and singing at Mountain City Traditional Arts, 25 E. Main St., Frostburg, on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 3 p.m. The event is free and is part of a series of presentations hosted by Frostburg State University students enrolled in the “Folklore of Appalachia” class as part of their participation in the Appalachian Regional Commission’s Appalachian Teaching Project.

Stands With Many is a Cherokee storyteller and educator who follows traditional Cherokee ways down through his family and clan. He will share stories from his first CD, “Cherokee Rabbit Tales,” such as “Rabbit Goes Fishing,” “How Rabbit Tricked the Wolves” and “How Wildcat Caught a Turkey.” His stories provide entertainment for children and adults while also teaching values and lessons about life.

Stands With Many graduated from Towson University with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. He believes that storytelling has a strong impact on children and feels that it nourishes imagination as well as sparks an interest in reading.
