Storytellers Series

Premiering in October, this brand new video series spotlights oral storytelling traditions across cultures. The series launches with the first of four storytellers, Anishinaabemowin educator Barbara Nolan. Barbara helped create one of the first NSL (Native as a Second Language) programs in Ontario. Her recorded stories, told over three days on Oct. 14, 21 and 28, will be presented in Ojibway with English subtitles.

Storyteller and playwright Gail Nyoka brings her stories to the virtual stage Nov. 25, Dec. 2 and 9. In 2018, Gail travelled to Ghana where she recorded tales of the Ewe people, Voices of the Ancestors: Stories and Lore from Ghana’s Volta. Louise Profeit-LeBlanc and Pamela Mordecai will also be featured later in the series. The Storyteller Series will be made available to schools with optional pre- and post-show workshops.
