12:45 INDIGENOUS STORY TELLING
Ralph McBryan is an Elder of the Little Shuswap Lake band and is proud to represent his community in the best possible way and teach all people about his culture and traditions through his stories. A lot of his stories have a deep meaning and teachings of how things come to pass or why things are the way they are. “In the best way I can tell you about me is I have been taught to tell our stories and remember our own history of my family as a knowledge keeper storyteller and teacher of culture of my people.”
