Biography: Words Are Sacred

“Many times people ask me, how did I get started as a storyteller. Native American people, we grow up basically as that. We grow up hearing stories all the time. But we don’t call them stories, legends or myths. To us, they are lessons, because they explain the universe.”

Tchin (pronounced ‘chin) learned many of his lessons from Princess Red Wing, a famous Narragansett woman who traveled the world telling traditional tales. He is also an avid researcher and many times is given the gift of lessons from other storytellers. To enrich his own cultural knowledge, he also studies folklore from around the world. “I’m studying quite a bit about the Mideast at this time. I’ve studied ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and what you get out of all that is that you get to understand people more clearly…How the universe makes sense to them…it allows you to understand your universe that much better.”
