YOU'RE INVITED TO OUR STORYTELLING GATHERINGS

 

The Citxw Nlaka'pamux Assembly nłeʔkepmxcín department invites all who would like to attend our upcoming Storytelling Gatherings. At these Gatherings on Zoom, we do a round of self-introductions amongst the group, and we typically have between ten and twenty participants. We have been hearing stories from our Elders, including Annie Major, Bernice Garcia, James Shuter, Mary Angus, Amelia Washington, Aiona Anderson, Madeline Lanaro and Larry Antoine. Some of the stories shared are older, such as our traditional stories about Coyote and the funny situations he gets into, others are more modern stories, all taking place within our territory, nłeʔkepmxúy̓mxʷ. Some elders share their stories in the language and then translate them into English. Other tellers share stories in English and incorporate the language through some vocabulary and Place-Names. Door prizes are drawn at each session, and this has been a great way to disburse some of our new language resources, such as Animal Flashcards, Alphabet Flashcards, our latest nkséytkn (My People) Flashcards, as well as our new CNA lanyard and flash drives loaded with printable language materials, and audio files for the Alphabet. We also have gifts such as Native design mugs, buffalo sage, orange t-shirts, CNA hoodies, and gift cards. If you or someone you know would like to arrange to share a story, please get in touch with our team: language@cna-trust.ca to discuss further.
