Aboriginal Storytelling Month 2019


For 15 years, libraries, schools and organizations across Saskatchewan have been hosting Aboriginal Storytelling events throughout the month of February. Sharing Aboriginal Storytelling 2018 saw 20,344 participants attend 345 storytelling sessions that were told by 64 storytellers, resource people and Elders who brought Aboriginal teachings, culture and entertainment through various forms of telling stories. We look forward to another successful, and fun, month of Storytelling!
