African Story Telling Time at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor

Inspired by a love of his native land’s culture, 1 East Nurse George Otieno, RN will be sharing folk tales and legends during African Storytelling Time at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor from 3-5 p.m. in the Auditorium on Saturday, August 10 and again on Aug. 24.  

George organized the free community event as a fun way to bring colleagues and families together. Through stories, mimes and dramas, attendees will learn why the giraffe’s neck is so tall, and how the tiger got his stripes, among other tales. Born and raised in Kenya, George moved to Michigan in 2000 and has been with St. Joe’s for 15 years. He is a member of the Wakenya in Michigan Assoication (WIMA) dedicated to promote African cultural awareness and educate our children and communities.
