The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
23. Birds, Bannock & Bears
JULIE FLETT, DALLAS HUNT, BRETT HUSON
A lively journey of language and learning from three Indigenous authors, capturing the diversity of ways we can learn from the environment and one another.
In this delightful afternoon of language and learning, Wapisewsipi author Dallas Hunt (Awâsis and the World- Famous Bannock), Gitxsan author Brett Huson (The Sockeye Mother & The Grizzly Mother) and Cree-Métis author Julie Flett (Birdsong) lead kids on a fun, lively journey through the woods. When young Awâsis accidentally loses her Kohkum’s worldfamous bannock, she works together with her forest friends to recover the celebrated recipe. In the Skeena River, a grizzly bear teaches her cubs about their environment. A young girl forms a friendship with an elderly neighbour through a shared love of art and nature. Through beautiful images and dynamic presentations, the authors introduce children to Indigenous languages and cultures and enriching perspectives—making for a perfect afternoon for hungry minds and adventurous hearts.
Presented in partnership with Vancity.
