Every year, over the past 15 years, libraries in the province of Saskatchewan have celebrated Aboriginal Story Telling Month, honouring the age old tradition of the elders, of storytelling in the cold winter months. This year, the Maryfield Public library sponsored a young First Nations story-teller, Brad Bellegarde. He shared his own version of contemporary storytelling through the medium of Rap. Brad is also known as Info Red, a storyteller, journalist, performer and rap singer. He shared traditional and modern aboriginal stories promoting respect, honour and belief in oneself. He is a proud Nakota/Cree member of the Little Black Bear First Nation who calls Regina, SK home.
Thanks to the Southeast Regional Library , Maryfield Branch and Library Services for Saskatchewan Aboriginal Peoples and the many sponsors who made this event possible.
