Come experience Coyote Tales at Center for the Arts at Kayenta! Coyote Tales are live, open mic-style storytelling events for amateur and experienced storytellers. Each event has a theme on which stories are to be based – this month's theme is “Frenemies.” Potential storytellers may address that theme in any way they choose. Prior to the event, storytellers craft their true, on-theme story, practice the telling (5 minutes or less) and work on eliminating excess detail to nail the perfect ending. When the doors open, storytellers put their name in the hat in hopes of being chosen to share their tale. If chosen, the storyteller takes the stage to delight the audience.
