Early Warnings from Ancient Stories: The Legacy of Native Myths and Stories in Earthquake Preparedness

This event has passed.

Earthquakes feature prominently in Native Oral Traditions up and down the Pacific Coast. Storytelling passes on important knowledge, ideas, beliefs, and lessons from one generation to the next.

Join Calvin Bray, Emergency Management Coordinator for the Chehalis Tribe, to learn how indigenous legends and stories have helped in preparing for disasters, and what important clues they can provide from similar past events.

Doors to the theater will open 10 minutes before the presentation. Please plan to arrive early as seating is limited.

For disability accommodations, please contact programs@mohai.org two weeks prior to the event.
