Event description

Description

A girl was born in a plant and transformed into human form by an old shaman woman. Sent from heaven, the girl was on the way to her wedding with a brave hunter when an evil spirit stole her face and took her place. Will the destined lovers be reunited?

Canadian storyteller and scholar Kira Van Deusen brings this Sakha tale to life and explores its ties to its culture of origin. Kira has worked for years with the storytellers of Siberia, Chukhotka, and the Canadian north. For more on her work and publications, visit kiravan.com
