What’s in a Story? Keeping a Story Alive Without Writing

Storytelling is central to many Indigenous cultures especially within the Pacific. Join Samoan storyteller Kiana Fuega to learn how different fagogo (fables) and tala o le vavau (myths and legends) from islands like Samoa, are important to the oral traditions of passing on information from one generation to the next, and how people across Moananuiākea (the vast Pacific) kept account of their surroundings and histories without ever having a written language.

This is a recording of a live virtual event that took place on May 19, 2022.
