UVM SIGNATURE EVENT: Native & Indigenous Heritage Month 

This is the kick-off event for Native & Indigenous Heritage Month and features an opening with Missisquoi Tribal Elder Rachel Whitebear and a performance by the Laughing Couple! Watch Rick Hunt illustrate the story that Carolyn tells. The name of Laughing Couple was given to Rick and Carolyn by an Incan boy, named Joey, whom they befriended while attending a Powwow. The name stuck and became their “identity”. This name naturally carried forward when Rick and Carolyn began their storytelling venture in earnest.

When asked how they came about doing Native American storytelling together, the reply is always “This is the path the Creator has set us upon”. Both Rick and Carolyn feel that the stories and artwork they create goes far beyond simple entertainment. “This is a way for us to reach people who would not otherwise be exposed to our culture. We feel that we are not only representing and honoring our ancestors, but that we are also respecting and honoring our people as a “modern” entity”. The storytelling and artwork provide a friendly avenue for us to introduce the dominant culture to who we are and what we are.” The response to what they offer has been consistently positive from all audiences.

The Laughing Couple programs are geared for Family Fun and entertain audiences of All ages.
