December 21, 2020

The University of Saskatchewan is piloting a new Indigenous Storyteller-in-Residence program in 2021. The storyteller will be involved in initiatives that “promote intercultural understanding and story sharing between and among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.” Additionally, the storyteller will present a project during Indigenous Achievement Week. “The University Library firmly supports USask’s Indigenization efforts,” said Charlene Sorensen, USask’s acting dean, University Library. “The Indigenous Storyteller-in-Residence pilot program is an important program that will help uplift Indigenous voices and perspectives and facilitate deeper cultural understanding at our university.” USask (SK)
