Indigenous Storytelling presented by Sask Polytech Library

 

What is Indigenous Storytelling?

For Indigenous people, storytelling is both a gift, and a very old custom, sanctioned by the people to teach, entertain and remember.

 

Sask Polytech Library will be hosting two virtual Indigenous Storytelling events during the month of February featuring local author Ernie Louttit.

 

Ernie Louttit, is a member of the Missanabie Cree First Nation raised off reserve in a small hamlet called Oba on the CNR mainline. He served with the Princess Patricia’s Light Infantry and the Military Police until joining the Saskatoon Police Service in 1987. He was the third First Nations Officer hired by the Saskatoon Police and he became known on the streets as “Indian Ernie”. He retired in 2012 and has since authored four books. 

 

All Sask Polytech staff and students are welcome to join us at these events.

Tuesday February 2nd, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (register here

Tuesday February 9th, 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. (register here)
