March 15, 2019 - Thanks to the Mariposa Storytelling committee, Native American Storyteller Dovie Thomason entertained students in all grade levels at Sierra Foothill Charter School, as well as Catheys Valley Preschool children, on March 14. The teaching tales of Ms. Thomason's Lakota and Plains Apache relatives came alive in her listeners imaginations as she shared her culture with understanding, humor, and vocal transformations.
