International Myths & Tales Panel

All cultures have their own myths and tales. Sometimes myths explain how the Earth was formed and created, or discuss heroes and magical figures. Others are used to teach valuable lessons about how to behave or why people live a certain way. These stories are universal, and there is a lot to learn from the myths of other countries.

Slide4

The International Myths & Tales Panel will be in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB on Wednesday, November 15 from 12:30pm – 2:30pm. Celebrate International Education Week and join your fellow Shoreline students and staff as we share myths and tales from all over the globe!
