White Feather: Intergenerational Stories Past, Present and Future

For Indigenous people, storytelling is both a gift, and a very old custom, used to teach, entertain, and remember. Since 2004, the Library Services for Saskatchewan Aboriginal Peoples (LSSAP) Committee has coordinated Saskatchewan Aboriginal Storytelling Month. Through the month of February, storytelling events are held by libraries and their partners in communities throughout Saskatchewan. Find more information about LSSAP's Aboriginal Storytelling Program here.
