Lloyd Arneach, a Cherokee author and storyteller, will perform at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 in the Baker University Center Theatre Lounge. The event is free and open to the public.
Arneach, who delivers his stories with humor and emotion, is best known for his 2008 book, “Long-Ago Stories of the Eastern Cherokee,” a collection of stories that address Cherokee lives and traditions. He also has composed a CD called “Can You Hear the Smoke?,” wrote a book titled the “Animal's Ballgame” and performed in the Cherokee outdoor drama Unto These Hills - A Retelling.
While growing up on the Cherokee Reservation in Cherokee, N.C., Arneach learned the Cherokee history and culture and worked as a traveling historian for 20 years starting in 1970. In 1990, he began his storytelling career and now regularly performs at universities, libraries and museums around the nation.
Arneach’s appearance is part of the university’s celebration of Native American Indian Heritage Month, which is observed annually in November. The event is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Programs and the Native People’s Awareness Coalition (NPAC).
