Our new Indigenous Story Time series brings Indigenous authors into schools and libraries. Actor Marco Collin, star of the Radio Canada series Pour toi Flora, and author and visual artist Christine Sioui Wawanoloath will share stories that explore themes related to ecology and traditional Indigenous knowledge. These activities for grade school students are presented free of charge. These Indigenous storytelling activities will take place in late April 2023 at libraries in St-Charles, Saul-Bellow and Mercier, all located in riverside neighbourhoods of Montreal, as well as in Contrecœur.

In 2022-23, the series was enriched by a special two-class visit at Mère Marie-Rose in Contrecœur that featured Nicolas Bérubé, a biologist associated with the Port of Montreal. Workshops facilitated by Caroline Barber followed this visit and empowered students to make use of poetry to express their points of view on these animals.
