Native American Storytelling and Music with Sondra Segundo
Connect. Collaborate. Create.
Native American Storytelling and Music
Let’s collaborate together through the inspiration of books!
45min single class (All grades)
Native American storyteller and musician Sondra Segundo brings stories from the Haida Nation to students in a traditional and engaging style. After a Read-Aloud of her picture book, Lovebirds(or other), Sondra conjures discussions with students that lead to the creation of an original song inspired by how the story connects with their lives. This is a great way to introduce Indigenous cultures in conversation and to generate art that involves collaboration. The final song will be posted on a special web page at learningwithstyle.com. Visual art sessions also available.
