Aboriginal Intersections

March 27-31, 2017

Stories unite us. They come from the traditions of the wampum weavers of the Six Nations and of oral storytellers sharing tales of Turtle Island. But they are also being explored by emerging Aboriginal artists. This program bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary Aboriginal storytellers by exposing students to mediums explored by members from several First Nations. Students will participate and contribute to all of these methods of storytelling.
