    About "Ty Nolan"

    1. Ty Nolan

      My mom was one of the very first Head Start teachers on the reservation, and she always worked with three year olds I would visit her in the classroom, and without warning, she d walk out, leaving me with 15 preschoolers Out of desperation, I would tell them a legend and teach them the song and dance that went with it.It wasn t until much later I realized my mom was forcing me to use the Stories I had been taught.Most recently I ve worked with the National Science Foundation s Flagship Project, Synergy I was asked to teach STEM Science, Technology, Engineering and Math professors at over a dozen colleges how to use Storytelling to effectively communicate complex concepts about technology to a general audience.I currently live in Arizona, where our local college South Mountain Community College has one of the only Storytelling Institutes in the United States, where one can be certified as a storyteller My series Coyote Cooks, has recipes included, but it s really about ideas than how much flour to add to the fry bread.

    2.

    3. I was torn between a 3 star rating and the 4 I eventually came up with 3 stars for the typos, of which there are many Sentences that have either a word added or deleted made for some interesting moments of figuring it out And the word floater kept popping up as fLoater But, there are some very, very funny moments and some quirky sayings that were right up my alley Like Here s to alcohol What great Story ever started with a salad The Native American stories mingled in with modern conveniences, an [...]


    4. Good and badNolan is an excellent writer and storyteller His life and personal point of view add to the Native American tales That said, the title is very misleading as this isn t much of a memoir If you are looking for a life story you will be disappointed.
