by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

Cherokee people like all other Native American Indian tribes possess a huge oral history. Before the time of written words, the history, customs and skills of a tribe were passed down through word-of-mouth and storytelling. Today, it is still an important part of Cherokee life.

In addition to the many stories included you will find new original art by award winning artist C.L. Hause. In this collection, you will find such stories as The Bear Man, How the World was made, The Mother Bear's Song, Origin of the Bear: The Bear Songs, The Bird Tribes, The Bride from the South, The Haunted Whirlpool, The Bullfrog Lover, The Hunter and the Buzzard, The Raven Mocker, The Water Cannibals, The Origin of Medicine, The Race between the Crane & the Hummingbird, The Rabbit Goes Duck Hunting, How the Deer Got His Horns, Why the Deer's Teeth are Blunt, The Deluge, Samuel Cloud Trail of Tears, The First Fire, The Lost Cherokee, Origin of Fish and Frogs, The Legend of the Cedar Tree, Flint Visits the Rabbit, Brother of the Moon, The Four-footed Tribes, How the Milky Way Came To Be, Untsaiyi' the Gambler, Why Rabbit Has a Short Tail, The Origin of Game and of Corn, The Slant-Eyed Giant, Bear Legend, Origin of the Groundhog Dance, and many, many more.

BWW Review: Husband-Wife Duo Andy Karl and Orfeh Bring Unapologetic Holiday Fun to Feinstein's/54 Below in LEGALLY BOUND
by Casey Mink - Dec 23, 2016

Perhaps you have attended a wedding and, despite repeated refusal, you are forced by your date or young family member to get up on the dance floor. You moan and groan and detest at the cloying silliness that is boogying to some horn-heavy interpretations of Top 100 hits or a once-inescapable Whitney Houston number.
