Rocci Hildum: A storyteller remembered

Becca Hildum mirrors her father’s style when she describes how he would have told his own tale, “The Story of Rocci Hildum.” The Wenatchee storyteller and social activist would have drawn in his audience with expressive hands and resonant voice, and make them laugh with his quirky sense of humor. “He wouldn’t talk about any of the bad things,” the 23-year-old said. “He would talk about his love of La Verne (a university in California). He never liked school until he went to La Verne. He would talk about his love of peace and social justice, and taking care of people, and the earth.”
