Turtle Island Tales is a performance of songs and stories of Native Americans, told through shadow puppetry and a life-sized realistic Native American singer puppet who narrates the show. Winner of puppetry's highest honor, the UNIMA Citation of Excellence, and recipient of three Jim Henson Foundation grants, Hobey Ford is known for excellence in puppetry performance and craft.

Hoby is an amazing puppeteer and a very talented puppet builder. I saw him perform a couple of years ago, and the show was great.
