Brother Sun, Sister Moon & Yup'ik Moon Song

Master artist, storyteller and dancer, Chuna McIntyre, performs traditional Yup'ik dance and song accompanied by percussion on a hand drum. He dances in his native costume and uses authentic artifacts and masks to illustrate the customs and stories of this ancient southwest Alaskan tribe.  In the lessons, teachers have the resources to guide students to use Indian signs to tell a story, interpret Nature Poems through creative movement and design a dance costume for a cultural celebration.  The Power of Nature combines with the themes of Enduring Values and The Human Family.
