AB ED Myths and Legends: Storytelling with an Indigenous Lens

Wondering how to "Indigenize" your texts? Don't know where to start with Indigenous literature? Wondering about the "authenticity" question? Let me help guide you!

In this session, I will talk about how I use the "oral storytelling" outcome in an experiential workshop (PPT provided) and small Q&A. We will look at resources available online, in some districts, and also in my personal library. 

Feel free to come prepared with your own questions that you're not sure 'who' to ask or 'where' to ask them. You can also bring your own resources if you're wondering if they're "good" or not, or even how someone could use it!

She attended university at the University of Victoria, started her first teaching contract in the small community of Gold River where she taught grades 8-12, then moved back down island where she taught at a French Immersion elementary/middle school in a non-enrolling position for a year, then transitioned back to high school teaching English and Social Studies for the last four years before coming to the Ministry of Education. She has sat on multiple local executives as Aboriginal Education and Social Justice chairs, and has been to many AGMs and Zone meetings. She has presented at conferences (including the STA), and has been interviewed many times for her perspective on Indigenizing the curriculum, most recently with a researcher from New Zealand. She happily purchased her first home in September of last year, happily married her husband in June, and happily became a cat mom of two kittens in July.
