Description:
How did the turtle get its shell? How does one become a millionaire? Why do roosters crow at the sun? Where do Backwoods people come from? Open A Mixed Medicine Bag and you just may find the answers, in this witty and entertaining collection of verbal-to-literary jazz, funk'n folklore. Originally released as a chapbook of seven stories in 1998, this edition A Mixed Medicine Bag contains 15 original Black Wampanoag folk-tales taken from the award-winning storytelling performances of Mwalim *7); one of the contemporary masters of the oral tradition. Drawing from his Eastern Native American, West Indian, and African American storytelling traditions, Mwalim *7) has shared his original lore with audiences at powwows, festivals, colleges, churches, community centers, schools, theatres, jails, street corners, night clubs, and coffeehouses throughout the USA and Canada for over eighteen years.
