Cavanaugh Lecture Features Native American Flute/Storytelling

Released: 11/16/2009

Peter Villegas, a stellar Native American storyteller and handmade flute player, will perform Tuesday (Nov. 17) at 7 p.m. at the Alexandria Museum of Art in the final Cavanaugh Public Lecture series event of the fall semester. The presentation, which is sponsored by the Department of Arts, English and Humanities at LSU Alexandria, is free and open to the public.

Villegas, who is of Yaqui Apache and Mexican descent, is an active member of the International Native American Flute Assn. His art “reminds us that life is full of simple joys.” Villegas, who lives in Kinder, performed for LSUA students as part of a Native American literature class last month.
