Born and raised on the Cherokee Reservation in Cherokee, North Carolina, Lloyd Arneach learned his first legends as a child. Arneach presents his stories in a style that is humorous, informative and deeply moving. Besides the traditional Cherokee legends, Arneach also presents modern tales from a variety of Native American tribes. His stories range from creation stories to behind the scenes of blockbuster movies such as “Dances with the Wolves, “Billy Mills (Olympic Champion),” etc.
Arneach has told stories at the Kennedy Center, National Folk Life Festival, the opening of the National Museum of the American Indian (Washington, D.C.), schools, universities, powwows, and other venues throughout the United States.
