Her ability to craft tales that not only enchant audiences––but also teach invaluable lessons about human nature and indigenous worldviews––has long made her a beloved contributor to schools, organizations and events around the globe. Thomason’s journey as a storyteller and artist began with the childhood influence of her Kiowa Apache grandmother.
