Lloyd Arneach

About the Artist

Lloyd Arneach was born and reared on the Cherokee Reservation in NC where he learned his first legends from two storytelling uncles.  Lloyd’s stories range from the “Old Stories” of the Cherokee to stories of contemporary Native Americans. Lloyd lectures on Cherokee history and culture and tells stories of Native history from other tribes. His style is humorous, informative, and extremely moving.

Storytelling performances for kindergarten to high school and families include a question and answer session when time allows. Performances for elementary students focus on the Cherokee traditional tales. Performances for middle school, high school and adult audiences focus on traditional  tales and contemporary and historical stories of the Cherokee and other Native tribes. Cherokee cultural history sessions of 60 minutes are available for small groups of 30 or less including lecture, artifacts and question and answer.
