Native American storyteller brings 'Beyond the Telescope' program to Dark Sky Park Jan. 4

The Headlands International Dark Sky Park is pleased to present Native American storyteller Joe Mitchell for the program "Beyond the Telescope: The Storyteller's Guide to the Night Sky," Saturday, January 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Headlands Guest House.

"The time for storytelling comes when the snow is on the ground," says Mitchell, revealing the participatory ways of indigenous people and how they have lived, historically, according to the principle of "to everything, there is a season."

Mitchell joins Headlands Program Director Mary Stewart Adams for the event, which will include a preview of celestial highlights coming our way in 2014. "Every year brings a new set of phenomena and events which, if you're a storyteller, makes each new cycle very exciting. As a storyteller, what I like to look for are any significant elements that might expose the stuff of myth or legend, or even historical coincidence. And to engage in this research and discovery while also hearing the tales from the native traditions is really a treat."

Sunset will occur at 5:07 pm on the 4th, and the program is designed to occur during that "special time between sunset and starshine, to celebrate the joy of anticipation that comes with the New Year. Venus, in the last few days as our evening star, will be brilliant near the waxing crescent Moon, setting a beautiful stage for the gathering," Adams added.

Event takes place rain, snow or shine. No reservations are required. Questions? Call Adams at (231) 838-8181 or emaildarksky@emmetcounty.org. The 2014 Dark Sky Park program calendar can be found online at www.emmetcounty.org/darkskypark/
