TWO STNM MEMBERS WIN THE 2018 STORYTELLING WORLD HONOR AWARD
Heartfelt and hearty congratulations to Joe Hayes and Elaine Muray for their 2018 Storytelling World Honor Awards, as highlighted in the Spring 2018 Storytelling Magazine. Joe is to be congratulated for his award winning children's book, Grandpa's Hal-la-loo-ya Hambone, winner in the category, Stories for Pre-Adolescent Listeners. Elaine's award is in the category for Storytelling Recordings, CD's or DVD's for listening and/or viewing pleasure for any age. Her DVD, Embodied & Enchanted: Seven Physically Performed Tales, is exceptional and unique in providing a multi-sensory storytelling experience.

Two Worlds is a progressive Native theater and film organization with a mission to entertain, inform, and inspire our diverse communities through theater, short films, and education/collaboration projects. With a primary focus of creating an affirmative depiction of modern Native American life as opposed to reinforcing cultural stereotypes commonly found in the entertainment industry, in a way that is both engaging and informative to both native tribal communities and the public at large. Two Worlds was established in 2006.

STORYTELLERS UNITED IN 2017 BROUGHT BOOKS AND BOOK LIGHTS TO PUERTO RICO!
STNM actively participated in a project to provide books and book lights to children impacted by Hurricane María in Puerto Rico that has left many on the island without power. As of January 1st, the project has raised $10,585 ($5,785 in cash and $4,800 in books) and has already sent book lights and books to Puerto Rican children who remain without electricity following the hurricane. Thanks to STNM board members, Bob Kanegis and Liz Mangual, who have personal ties to the island, for doing the leg work to bring this project to fruition. Thanks to all those who donated to make their vision quickly become a reality! Learn all about this exciting initiative for which STNM is proud to participate as fiscal agent.
Thanks for giving these children a life line through your contributions and support of the Puerto Rico Book Project!
