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 3, 2019

Christmas 1967, a time when everybody played hockey outdoors. The Aces are the parish’s B Team and will be playing the Christmas Tournament only because they are hosting it. They may be short on talent, but they still believe they can win. Off the ice, they have all kinds of classic teen experiences, some fun and some not so fun. Either way, they’ll take them on together. And it’s together that they’ll grow up, because that’s the way they’ve decided to live their lives: together.

Co-sponsored by French Canadian Society of Prince Albert.
