Stories of the Night Sky

Stories of the Night Sky

Captured on Video by Aboriginal Youth

Canadians are interested in their country, their history, and their roots. When stories are told first hand about a place (Turtle Island - North America) that we inhabit, it touches our heart and soul, taking on a very personal meaning. The construction of identity is ongoing; this project is a meaningful part of the process.

It is the story telling capabilities of the Elders and the utilization by the young story gatherers of today's technology that make these stories both relevant and contemporary. It helps in our understanding of cultural differences and how modern day society has changed and molded our perceptions of the world in which we live. We all share the night sky; we all have this in common.
