Welcome to the Land of Stories

Stories

Here at the LandOfStories.ca we explore the heritage of stories which are told in the land of Nanabozho. The supernatural Nanabozho character goes by various names depending upon region and culture, however, many traditional stories are wrapped around very similar story lines, indicating that those story elements are likely very old. Variations on the name Nanabozho (Anishinaabe) are Nanabush (English), Nanabijou (Fran├žais), Weesakayjac (Cree), Wenabozho, etc. Here is a discussion of those language variations.

Projects

We also offer some resources associated with some projects which we are supporting.

Historical Timeline

We are attempting to prototype an historical timeline from an Indigenous perspective in order to encourage discussion. And here you can follow our historical timeline prototyping.
