Interested in hearing stores that have been passed down generation after generation? Each day, Elders, Knowledge Keepers and special guests will share a story from their nation and talk about its roots and significance. These stories, from many different cultures, will entertain and educate.
Storytelling is a method of knowledge sharing used to teach about cultural beliefs, values, customs, rituals, history, practices, relationships, and ways of life. Traditionally, First Nation, Métis and Inuit storytelling occurs during the winter months.
