Will Hill is a full-blooded Native American Indian. He was raised as a traditional storyteller of the Nogonugojeeh society (storytelling society) of the Muscogean people. He was the first American Indian to perform at the new National Museum of the American Indian, a component of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. He has performed for Walt Disney World and has been featured at many national storytelling conferences and festivals around the country. Hill continues to provide arts and education to schools and communities across the state and the nation. By keeping the stories of his people alive with each of his folklore performances he is an American Indian storyteller by destiny.
