Event Description: The Boca Raton Public Library brings professional storyteller, Pedro Zepeda, to the Downtown Library for a unique performance: “Seminole Storytelling: History of a People.” As part of this year’s Story Central focus on Cultural Connections, Zepeda shares age-old Seminole myths, such as “How the Buzzard Got His Nose” and “The Lion and the Missing Girl.” Not only are they terrifically entertaining tales, but also the foundation of the deeply held beliefs and cultural practices of the Seminoles. Pedro Zepeda is a Seminole cultural interpreter, artist and wood-cutter. He was born and raised in Naples, Florida, and graduated from Stetson University with a degree in fine arts. At the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation in the Everglades, he honed his skills in traditional arts and interpretation of Seminole culture. Growing up, Zepeda heard traditional Seminole stories from his grandmother and other elders among the tribe. He gleaned many lessons from these stories that he still applies to his everyday life and shares with his audiences.
