Naturalist, master storyteller and environmental educator Duke Addicks' powerful presentation combines the latest scientific knowledge about eagles with American Indian eagle and thunderbird stories and music.
As storyteller and chief justice for the Three Rivers Indian Community, Duke has been authorized to collect and tell traditional tales about eagles and the mysterious thunderbirds. As a long-time volunteer naturalist for the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, as a contract instructor for many years at the Science Museum of Minnesota, and as a volunteer educator at the Raptor Center of the University of Minnesota, Duke knows about eagles. He has completed professional development instruction at the College of Veterinary Medicine in the care and management of captive raptors and is a volunteer educator and eagle handler/caretaker at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota.
Duke selects stories from those of the Indian tribes historically located where he is speaking, so his audience learns the eagle and thunderbird legends and lore of the Indians of their own area.
