Anne Jennison has been a Baha'i for 35 years and a storyteller for 30 of those years. Anne originally recorded in these stories in January 1995 - during the heart of the Winter storytelling season. "Hummingbird: Native American Stories" received a 1996 Honor Award from Storytelling World Magazine. This CD celebrates the 20th Anniversary re-release of "Hummingbird: Native American Stories". Hummingbird Stories are as elusive as Hummingbird itself, but when Hummingbird shows up, something wonderful is about to happen! You have to be very patient - look & listen very well - if you want to catch a story of Hummingbird - the Little Wind Dancer.

Anne comes from countless generations who've lived in the Northeastern Woodlands, but Anne's worldview is also shaped by having lived in such far-flung places as Kansas, the Philippines, Maryland, Ohio, Massachusetts, France, and Germany as well as the New Hampshire Seacoast. In addition to being a member of the Baha'i International Community, Anne is a Native American Storyteller with European and Abenaki heritage: a dyed-in-the-wool New Englander. With Master's degrees in both Storytelling and History, Anne brings a wealth of knowledge - polished by 30 years as a performing storyteller - to her retelling of these timeless stories about Nanatasis - Hummingbird - The Little Wind Dancer. In these Native American stories, Hummingbird is often seen as sacred and as the bringer of sacred gifts to the People. And the stories - while entertaining - also teach lessons from which we may learn about how to put elements of the world into right relationship with one another.
