Saskatchewan Indigenous Storytelling

Presented by Sask Polytech Library & the Indigenous Activity Centre

What is Indigenous Storytelling?

For Indigenous people, storytelling is both a gift, and a very old custom, sanctioned by the people to teach, entertain and remember.

Throughout February First Nations and Métis storytelling events are held in schools, libraries, and community organizations throughout Saskatchewan.

Students and staff, join us at these campus events!
