DOCUMENTING THE STORIES OF THE WENATCHEE TRIBE THROUGH THE LEGENDS, HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON
AS TOLD BY RANDY LEWIS AND CAPTURED BY NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON FILM STUDENTS
This film takes its name from a time-honored practice when, in the deep of winter, a tribal elder would gather the young people around and begin to tell a story, a story about the land, about the powers of the animals roaming through it and about the relationship of the people to it all. These stories would unfold over not just hours, but over a period of days, delivered with a sense of poetry, a cadence that captivated the young listeners and imprinted on them deeply, connecting them to the land and to their own heritage in ways that would remain with them their entire lives, and ultimately would be told again in the deep of winter to the generations not yet born.
These stories exist still today and it is the purpose of this project to capture them in a form that can captivate the modern young mind. Through native storyteller Randy Lewis it is possible still to connect our youth to the lands, to imbue them with a sense of awe, wonder and respect. This project seeks to endow students with the skills to become modern storytellers and to deliver those stories through the channels of today in classrooms, through TVs and YouTube all while preserving these stories forever.
The Winters Tale is a directed film study program through the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts.
