Biographical Info Cynthia has her Master's Degree in Multi-cultural Education from The University of the Americas, Puebla, Mexico. Her teaching experience in Loving, Carlsbad and Santa Fe has given her a unique perspective not only of the differences, but, more importantly, of the similarities in cultures. From these experiences she chooses stories. She is a former board member of Storytellers of New Mexico and of the New Mexico State Liaison to the National Storytelling Network.
Program Title TALES FROM THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT: Historical Stories and Captivating Folk Tales
Program Description Tales from the Land of Enchantment is a program of stories unique to New Mexico. Some stories are long, and some are short, but all tell tales that will introduce the audience to truisms unique to New Mexico combined with stories rich in Southwest folklore. While a number of stories such as La Hormiguita and El Terrible Tragadabas have Spanish in them, Cynthia does not tell stories completely in Spanish. All stories will engage the minds of listeners of all ages and backgrounds and leave them sometimes surprised and amazed, sometimes with shivers, and sometimes with laughter, but always with a better understanding of New Mexico culture.
