Coyote’s Journey

In the Karuk language, the word for shadow is the same as the word for spirit. 

Ancient tradition and cutting-edge technology are masterfully blended in this powerful live performance of Native California Karuk stories following the adventures and misadventures of California's native trickster: Coyote.

Charlie "Red Hawk" Thom's Coyote's Journey is a traditional Native California Karuk tale brought to light by ShadowLight Productions using the ancient medium of shadow theater, with live bilingual (Karuk/English) storytelling, singing, and drumming, giantprojected shadows and live actors.
