Storytelling at Cades Cove
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is inviting the public to join master Cherokee storyteller Kathi Littlejohn in Cades Cove for a series of storytelling sessions beginning today from noon to 2:00 p.m. at the Cades Cove Campground Amphitheater. Kathi is a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and has been telling stories since 1986. She is well known for delivering her stories in a dramatic, entertaining, expressive and down-to-earth style. Additional storytelling sessions will be held on Saturday, July 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the Cades Cove Campground Amphitheater and on Thursday, August 2 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Cades Cove Visitor Center area near Cable Mill. A board member of the NC Folklore Association, Littlejohn was a featured artist at various events including the 2017 Solar Eclipse Event at Clingmans Dome, the National American Indian Museum in Washington, D.C., Colonial Williamsburg in VA, and the Museum of Cherokee Indian in NC. She is featured in “Living Stories of the Cherokee,” an award winning collection of stories published by the University of North Carolina Press, and is regularly consulted by universities, organizations, and schools for her cultural knowledge. For more information about the program, contact Park Ranger Beth Bramhall at 865-448-4123 or by email at beth_bramhall@nps.gov.
