About Robert Lewis:

 

Robert Lewis is an award-winning Native American storyteller and artist of Cherokee, Navaho, and Apache descent. Robert works for the Cherokee Nation as a school and community specialist and conducts outreach classes and services in art, culture, and storytelling and has been presenting Cherokee culture and art to various schools and communities for over 20 years.

 

He has won numerous awards for his artwork and for storytelling such as The Dreamkeepers Perry Aunko Indigenous Language Preservation Award and the Cherokee National History Society Seven Star Tradition Bearer Award as well as being the first storyteller awarded as a Cherokee National treasure for storytelling by the Cherokee Nation in 2015. Robert also teaches Native Arts and Crafts classes at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

 

“I heard my first story from my Father, who told me about the creation of the universe at the age of seven and I never forgot it. I believe Storytelling is an art form and as an art form in order for it to continue to be relevant to the present, the Stories must evolve as well, one of the reasons I stress to those who enjoy these stories is that each Storyteller will tell the same story slightly different than what one may have heard before and in these retellings a new flavor is added and new awakenings are born.”
