Storytelling is an ancient art to be found in all cultures, it preceded the written word as the main means of communication and teaching across the ages. It is just as powerful today. It brings people together to listen, share and ask questions in a comfortable, safe setting. It is a way to share our culture, our history and learn about our family, each other’s culture. It helps to define who we were and who we are. It is entertaining and educational. Hear some of my stories and why and how I use them to reach across generations to build bridges of understanding amongst my own people and in the community. Bring your stories to share and tell us why they are important to you.
