All women are invited to attend Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views to hear Roger Fernandes from the Lower Elwha Band of the S’Kallam Tribe near Port Angeles share Coast Salish stories.

SWERV meets from 10:30 a.m. until noon Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Filipino American Hall.

Fernandes will be joined by his friend, noted Dakota storyteller Fern Renville.

Fernandes holds a degree in Native American Studies from Evergreen State College and has been recognized by the Washington State Arts Commission for his work with art initiatives and organizations by and for Native American artists. He believes that the legends, myths, creation, flood and hero stories he has learned and now shares actually define the culture of the tellers. He has recently been artist in residence at IslandWood.
