2014 Storytellers Festival - Feb 16-21
Join us for our annual Storytellers Festival, February 16th-21st.
We would like to welcome you to the Sakewewak’s 14th Annual Distinguished Storytelling Festival 2014. The festival lineup is one of our strongest to date. Sakewewak defines storytelling not just originating from the oral traditions, but expands into including multi-disciplinary forms that evolve from all methods of sharing Indigenous experience: dance, gesture, song, performance, and comedy. Storytelling is the root of human experience and we are welcoming you to experience the many Indigenous artist performances we have this year. The Festival has events for many different age ranges and our venues include: New Dance Horizons, On the Move Bus Tour, Artful Dodger, The Exchange, First Nation University of Canada, Pasqua Native Health Center, and Sakewewak Head Office. We have special guests who are from their own Nations: Maori (New Zealand), Yup’ik (Alaska), Haudenosaunee (Akwesasne) nationwide (Dine, Dakota, Cree, Saulteaux, Anishnaabe, Metis, ) and across the province. Thank you to all the storytellers, artists, attendees, and volunteers who are the reason we do this festival every year for in order to share and exchange all of our beautiful rich deep cultural practices across the continent and internationally.
