At this special program, which only occurs twice a guests will gather at the Great Kiva off the Mesa Village Trail as sunset approaches to listen to stories about Native American culture and history, told by Jicarilla Apache tribal member, Andulia Davis.
Storytelling is an important part of the Jicarilla tradition and is used to educate younger generations about the history of the nation and how it came to be. Andulia is a volunteer with CRIA and is also a substitute teacher in Dulce. Her father was a medicine man and her grandfather, Augustine Vigil, was one of five chiefs who went to Washington D.C. in the 1880s to secure reservation lands for Jicarilla Apache Nation.
