Storytelling evening with Nicole O’Bomsawin
June 17, 2022
Jardin Daniel A. Séguin
Free of charge
It is our honour to invite you to an evening of stories and songs with W8banaki storyteller Nicole O’Bomsawin. Her stories tell of the relations between plants and the People of the Rising Sun and the importance of certain plants to the Nation. In collaboration with the Crème bakery, we offer cookies and teas made with northern herbs.
Bring your blankets, cups or glasses, and a bit of insect repellent!
Nicole O’Bomsawin is an anthropologist, museologist, knowledge keeper, storyteller, and teacher. She has worked as a cultural development officer among the Abenaki families of Odanak and Wôlinak and as director of the Musée des Abénakis. She has also visited hundreds of schools and met with thousands of students in the territory that we call Québec to share a different version of history and to counter prejudices and stereotypes with regard to Indigenous individuals and communities. Her stories tell of the imagination, values, and foundational narratives of her W8banaki heritage.
