Mama Edie Armstrong

Artist • Touring • Theater

Mama Edie is a bilingual storyteller (Spanish/English), published writer, percussionist, speech/language pathologist, and voice-over artist who has provided international storytelling performances and workshops to parents, teachers, children, social workers, steel workers, attorneys, and various other professionals since 1989. Her stories are largely inspired by her passionate regard for her African and Native American ancestries.

She believes that the power of story can help us to connect with the importance of knowledge of one’s self, of belief in one’s self, of understanding our connections to the rest of the world, and of honoring the right each of us has to strive to attain our highest potential. Whether fun and frollicky or somber and serene, these presentations are powerful reminders of our own beauty and strength and the gifts we are to the world.
