At dusk, come meet some famous Indigenous figures in the form of puppets.

Learn all about Atshen the giant, Sedna and lots of others. These short presentations are an opportunity to delve into the First Nations and Inuit oral tradition, and to awaken all your senses. Legends are stories inspired by real or imaginary events, and can take different forms from one nation or storyteller to another. The tradition continues today, thanks to elders and a new urban generation.

Take a seat around the fire and listen – Fridays and Saturdays only.
