Put on your seven-league boots and catch us on Zoom for a walk through our nation. ‘Canadian’ can mean many different things for different people at different times. The power of stories is to bring us closer to each other, echoing voices from the past and from other worlds. Join our 7 tellers and our 2 co-hosts for a journey through lands and languages...
From the birth of the butterfly,
From Ireland, to China, going through India.
From Russia to a remote farm in Manitoba and a small village in New Brunswick.
Let the voice of our tellers raise your spirit and cheer you up!

Storytellers! Dr. Cathy Miyata will be conducting a research study this fall on exploring how storytelling is being used with children (3- 17 yrs) during COVID 19. Is it helping? How and why? (She can provide free resources -including videos and activities- on storytelling for anyone interested). The research project is called Storytelling in Uncertain Times. Cathy invites you to participate in this project by engaging students in storytelling activities, then completing a short survey and/or brief 30 minute remote interview. Identities of all participants will remain confidential. If you are interested in participating in this study please contact Cathy before November 30, 2021 for further details: email@example.com
