Historical Storytelling Performance

by Granddaughter Pauline Sharp

Pauline Sharp at Kanza Museum

Pauline tells the story of the Kanza (Kaw) people through the character of her grandmother, Lucy Tayiah Eads, the first woman chief of the Kanza. 

This captivating historical performance is perfect for schools, libraries, historical societies, senior centers, and all women organizations.

After the Chautauqua-style performance, the audience will be able to ask questions of the character as well as the performer.

Reasonable fees will be negotiated for each contracted performance.
