What is Aboriginal Storytelling
For Aboriginal people, storytelling is both a gift and a very old custom, sanctioned by the people to teach, entertain, and remember. Throughout First Nations and Métis, storytelling events are going to be held in schools, libraries, and community organizations throughout Saskatchewan.
Dennis Omeasoo originally from Hobbema, Alberta and now resides on Pasqua First Nation. Dennis currently works with the Regina Public School system and has a passion for sharing the beauty of the Cree Language and is well known for sharing teachings found in traditional stories.
Rodger Ross is a Métis/Nehiyaw (Cree) born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. A member of the George Gordon Cree First Nation, Rodger is a multifaceted storyteller who works in independent film, video and audio with more than 30 years’ experience in the industry.
Rhonda Donais (Métis) has been telling stories and entertaining the young at heart for over 20 years. She is best known for her goofy, zany clown character “Tulip”. Rhonda has head lined at Children’s festivals, exhibitions and fairs. Rhonda loves to tell stories about coyote, wisakechak, Raven and many other stories that will keep you entertained, make you laugh out loud or think.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
