Celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day with a special storytime for all ages with Kung Jaadee.
Kung Jaadee (Roberta Kennedy) is a professional storyteller, educator and published author belonging to the X̱aayda (Haida), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) First Nations. Her Haida name, Kung Jaadee, means ‘Moon Woman’ and was presented to her at her great uncle’s memorial feast by her cousin Crystal Robinson.
Kung Jaadee will read from her book, sing traditional Haida songs, and share nursery rhymes and teach children to count in Xaad Kil.
Don’t miss this special celebration of National Indigenous People’s Day for the young ones!
This event is sponsored in part by the Canadian Federation of University Women – Coquitlam.
