Gather together and celebrate Indigenous Storytelling Month with Elder Hazel Dixon. She has recorded 14 new Indigenous stories to share with us. Traditionally, storytelling was an important source of education and entertainment during the long winter months. Elders pass down the knowledge, traditions, and morals of their people to the next generation.
This video series was developed in partnership with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation.
