Approximately 20 students gathered in a circle around visiting storyteller Tinh Mahoney in the Longhouse on April 18 while he sang songs, played guitar and told stories. Mahoney was invited to speak to the students as part of the Storytelling Model for Social Justice through the Arts.
From his fearful childhood in war-torn South Vietnam emerged Mahoney’s personal mission to enjoy life and help others do the same. Fighting and killing was going on all around Mahoney when he was young. He lived in constant fear.
