Carbondale, Ill- In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, WSIU Public Broadcasting and the Shawnee National Forest are proud to present a special performance by Native American storyteller Robert Lewis on Thursday, November 19 at 7pm in Ballroom B of the SIUC Student Center. The show is free and open to the public. Lewis also will perform on Friday, November 20 at 7pm at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mt. Vernon.

Lewis has been delighting audiences with his colorful Native stories and folklore since 2003. He makes his performances an interactive experience by inviting audience members onstage to appear as characters from traditional Cherokee stories. Currently, Lewis serves as a School and Community Specialist from the Cherokee Nation, headquartered in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and specializes in conducting outreach classes and services in Art and Storytelling for the Nation's Education Department. He has a BA in Fine Art from Northeastern State University (NSU) and teaches evening classes in art and native crafts at NSU.
