The California Indian Museum and Cultural Center invites you to an evening of storytelling with Jacque Tahuka-Nunez. Ms. Nunez, a master storyteller, teacher, singer, director, writer and cultural consultant, will share stories of her Acjachemen ancestors. Selected as “Educator of the Year” 2009 for the State of California, she combines cultural enrichment with classroom teaching techniques in creating historically accurate
and appropriate resources for students. Ms. Nunez will explore the history of storytelling and the use of oral tradition in preserving and passing on California Indian cultural heritage. She has shared her stories at Disneyland, Los Angeles and Anaheim convention centers, and hundreds of schools and libraries. Ms. Nunez believes in the use of storytelling to illustrate the beauty of California Indian communities and looks to inspire others to discover more about their own cultures.
