Saskatchewan Indigenous Storytelling Month Presentation for School Students
Monday, February 11, 10:30 to 12:00
Presenter:  Lyndon Tootoosis

It’s Saskatchewan Indigenous Storytelling Month this February.  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 going to be held by schools, libraries, and community groups across Saskatchewan.

Schools in Prince Albert have been invited to this registered storytelling event featuring Creation stories and Teachings of the Battleriver Cree.  This presentation will be on Monday, February 11 at 10:30 and will be approximately 1 ½ hours long.  Recommended for all ages.

Lyndon Tootoosis, of the Battle River Cree tribal group, has been a sculptor for 25 years. As a youth, he was traditionally guided and learned to make ceremonial objects. With permission from his Elders, he shares their stories, legends and beliefs through sculpture. His artwork is found in collections across Canada, including that of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Lyndon has worked with the Allen Sapp Gallery and the Living Sky and Chinook School Districts. In 2014, he was on the artistic team for the North American Indigenous Games, where he served as a mentor and ensured that cultural protocols were followed.

January 19, 2019

Mary's visit with her Great-Aunt Charlotte in the British countryside turns into an extraordinary adventure when she ignores the warnings of a local boy, Peter, and follows his two cats into the forest on a misty day. Mary finds an old broomstick and a beautiful flower that the estate's gardener tells her is coveted by those who practice witchcraft because it can bestow power. When Mary finds herself suddenly developing the powers of a witch, the broomstick takes her to a magic school known as Endor College. At Endor, Mary tries to understand better who she is and what she wants out of life. She also faces a terrible decision: She must choose between her amazing powers and doing the right thing.
