Michael Heralda

Michael Heralda's Aztec Stories will be presented on Tuesday, May 6th at 7 pm at the Mary Miller Theater. This is a FREE event, open to the public. LCAC is pleased to be sponsoring a free program at the Mary Miller Theater on May 6. Audience members will participate in presentations that feature interactive music, song, storytelling, poetry and informative narratives that share the beauty and rich cultural heritage of the Mexica/Aztec people.

This is an engaging interactive one hour performance program that shares indigenous knowledge regarding the seasonal concepts of springtime - its meaning, symbolism, philosophical understanding, and ceremonial applications. Through oral tradition stories, music, and narratives, Michael presents an intimate view of indigenous women and men and their connections to the earth and nature. Michael and one additional supporting musician will bring over 35 hand-made indigenous instruments to demonstrate and share during a presentation. Audience participation is welcomed and encouraged.
