Monday, April 30, 2012

Celebrations & Talking Sticks: Folklore & Film 2On Friday April 27, the Kelowna campus Aboriginal Students Club celebrated their achievements over the academic year, with family, friends & students from local school districts, and visitors from local bands and communities. Activities in the Student Services building included traditional stick games plus film screenings & story telling circles with resources borrowed from the College Library.

A vibrant feature of books & media covering aboriginal folklore were displayed in the foyer of the Kelowna campus Library (Centre for Learning). Children’s story books, collections of aboriginal legends and folklore from Canadian & native cultures from around the world, and works on traditional crafts were drawn from across the College’s four campus libraries and the Deakin Collection of Children’s Literature.
