Gadugi Scholars Teach Kindergartners Traditional Cherokee Stories

Gadugi scholars recently taught traditional Cherokee stories to kindergartners at Cherokee Elementary School in early September. ASU/CHS students related ancient tales from Cherokee culture, including Grandmother Spider, Selu, and others. They also led the kindergartners in fun activities, such as pin-the-tail-on-the-rabbit—a game that helped illustrate the Cherokee story "How the Rabbit lost Its Tale." The story time was made possible through the cooperation and coordination of Ms. Jessica Nipper, an Appalachian State University alumnus and Cherokee elementary school kindergarten teacher.
