Aboriginal Storytelling Month
The Province of Saskatchewan has declared the month of February 2023 to be Saskatchewan Aboriginal Storytelling Month in the province.
First Nations people have long passed on knowledge from generation to generation through oral traditions, including storytelling. Storytelling is a traditional method used to teach about cultural beliefs, values, customs, rituals, history, practices, relationships, and ways of life. First Nations storytelling is a foundation for holistic learning, relationship building, and experiential learning. Traditionally, it is during the winter months that First Nations storytelling occurs.
