IAC Speaker Series Wednesday, May 24th

IAC Speaker Series  with Dr.Yvonne Poitras-Pratt

Dr. Pratt’s research focuses on the use of new media,

particularly digital storytelling, as a means to revitalize

cultural traditions and intergenerational learning within Métis

communities. One community has now created 19 digital

stories about their lives as contemporary Métis. Yvonne has

also brought digital storytelling into an urban setting through

a partnership between Rupertsland Institute and the Council

of Elders at the Edmonton Catholic School District. Related to

this work is Dr. Pratt’s investigation into the relationship

between technology and traditional storytelling and how

technology can be used to reclaim voice and traditional ways

of knowing through multiple literacies.

Wednesday, May 24th

7:00-9:00pm

The Indigenous Awareness Committee

Welcomes You to the Redwood House in

Redwood Meadows, AB. for a informative

and family friendly evening of conversation.

Refreshments and a children’s area will be

made available.

This event is free to all participants.

 

Community update

Cochrane RCMP are searching the area after possible human remains were found near the municipality of Redwood Meadows on Thursday. The bones were reported to police at around 12:30 p.m. after being discovered in a remote location south of the intersection of Highway 22 and Highway 8. RCMP said the bones were taken to the medical examiner’s office to determine whether or not they are human. Officers will be searching an area along Highway 22 on Friday in an effort to uncover more evidence. Investigators are asking members of the public to stay away from this area while the police operation is ongoing. RCMP said traffic along Highway 22 may be impacted while the search takes place.
