Visit the Royal Alberta Museum for a reading of the books Nokum is my Teacher by David Bouchard, and Phyllis’s Orange Shirt by Phyllis Webstad.
Nokum is my Teacher is written as a dialogue between a young boy and his grandmother (Nokum). By sharing her teachings, Nokum guides her grandson to a new understanding of the larger world outside, while maintaining respect for the way of the people.
Phyllis’s Orange Shirt is the true story of Phyllis and her orange shirt, and how that became a symbol of solidarity and remembrance of the Indigenous children forced to go to the residential schools.
These two books are appropriate for children aged 4-8 and their families.
This storytime will be held in the Roundhouse, located on the main floor of RAM, past the Admissions Desk and to the left. You can inquire at the Admissions Desk if you require assistance locating the space.
