Dovie Thomason

Dovie Thomason

Artist Overview

Ms. Thomason's traditional storytelling celebrates her Lakota & Kiowa Apache ("Plains Indians") cultures, as well as the Woodlands Iroquois and Algonquian cultures who trained her. Stories teach respect for other cultures and inspire delight in the Spoken Word. Thomason's a former teacher and a master of her craft who profoundly believes that fluency with spoken word and active listening skills are perhaps the most powerful tools we can bring to our students' competence with both oral and written language projects. This Literacy By Word of Mouth process enriches language arts, social studies, earth sciences, and student and teacher verbal confidence.
