The Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Network Inc. and the Ānskohk Aboriginal Writers Circle Inc. are proud to present the Ānskohk Aboriginal Writers Festival October 19-22, 2011 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan! Ānskohk is one of two literary festival of its kind in the country showcasing the talent of Aboriginal authors from across Canada, educating the general population about the richness of Aboriginal literacy and to promoting further understanding of Aboriginal peoples.
The festival brings professional First Nations and Métis writers to Saskatoon for a series of workshops, school visits and special events to promote the diversity of talent among Aboriginal authors in Canada. We are proud to welcome Tomson Highway and over a dozen of talented writers.
The Festival kicks off for general public audiences at 8 p.m. on October 19th with “BANNOCKDOTES” at the Production Centre. The recipe for this exciting evening takes four extraordinary Aboriginal writers, adds songs, stories and mixes them together with an interactive audience to create an evening of art and entertainment you won’t want to miss!
