Storyteller Jim Two Crows Wallen to speak at Graham Cave State Park June 2

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, MAY 22, 2018 – National award-winning storyteller Jim Two Crows Wallen will speak at Graham Cave State Park 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Wallen will tell stories in front of the park’s namesake cave where Native peoples once lived for several thousands of years.

Wallen is an oral historian who combines his love of history with a good story. Displaying original-handmade, museum-quality artifacts and clothing, he respectfully teaches the history of several American Indian Nations.

This family friendly outdoor event is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets, and insect repellent is strongly recommended. Event parking will be in the lower parking lot, which will require a short hike on a paved trail to the cave.

Graham Cave State Park is located near Danville on Highway TT, two miles west of Highway 161 at the 170 Exit. For more information, telephone the park office at 573-564-3476.
