About the Artists
Rob Aptaker
For over forty years, Rob Aptaker spent time visiting Native American people from many tribal nations. Rob is an avid student of Native American oral histories and of Native American historical and anthropological records and has been privileged to learn some of the stories, songs, and traditional ways of North America’s indigenous people. Rob shares, “If there is artistry in my presentations and performances, it is not in imitation; rather, it is in finding the words, sounds, and gestures to help audiences connect with what is universal in the unique and particular story I am sharing. To make history and culture come to life for school children, I call on the power of stories to awaken their imaginations.”
