Corky will introduce us to her traditions of oral storytelling and the important teachings discussed in her book, the Sharing Circle. Theresa "Corky" Larsen-Jonasson is a proud Cree/Danish Métis Elder with roots in Red Deer and Maskwacis First Nations. She lives her life according to the traditional Indigenous teachings that saved her life. These teachings flow from her parents, her 93-year-old Kokom, Christine Joseph of Cochrane, aunties, uncles, as well as from the Goodstrikers, Williams and John Crier families, all of whom she loves immensely. The presentation will be shown at schools the day after on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/rdplorg) and at Red Deer Arts Council website (https://www.reddeerartscouncil.ca/) on the last weekend of September.
