The Storytellers
Ken Quiet Hawk and Deborah New Moon Rising were married in 1966 during the height of very turbulent times in our world. After Quiet Hawk returned from his tour of duty in Vietnam, they raised two children, who in turn gifted them with grandchildren and now great grandchildren. Some of which are mentioned in some of their stories.   

Quiet Hawk and New Moon Rising are both of Abenaki descent. Both being from the Dawn land they felt most at home in a small wooded town in New Hampshire.  Living by a quiet lake, they gather wondrous insight into the stories they tell.

Quiet Hawk is an accomplished flute maker and photographer, whose Native wooden flutes and stunning photographs are played and viewed by many world wide. New Moon Rising is an award-winning artist best known for her realistic wildlife paintings on wild turkey feathers. Her birch bark rattles and crafts adorn the regalia of many from coast to coast.  

Together with all the stories and life’s lessons they have gathered, they are very popular storytellers at Pow Wows and Native gatherings. They have performed at concerts and schools throughout New England, as well as traveling the entire East coast to share the teachings of the native peoples.

2008 was the year that The Storytellers received their first Native American Music Awards “NAMMY” for the Best Spoken Word Recordings along with a nomination for the Best Male Artist.  In 2009 they received their second NAMMY nomination for the Best Spoken Word Recordings. 2010 brought The Storytellers their second NAMMY win for the Best Spoken Word Recordings along with a nomination for the Best Female Artist.
