Join Indigenous professional author, storyteller, singer, teacher, and drummer Kung Jaadee at Horizon Stage. Over the past 28 years, Kung Jaadee has performed traditional Haida legends, while also sharing vivid personal stories about her clan’s survival of the smallpox epidemic, and the history and culture of her people. She has performed at hundreds of festivals, schools and Aboriginal celebrations across Canada. She is the author of the popular children’s books, Raven’s Feast and Gifts from Raven (selected as a Local BC Book to Read), as well as curriculum textbooks, Haida Nation: Indigenous Communities in Canada and We Are Home. Her stories have also been published in several anthologies, magazines and online publications. Most recently, Kung Jaadee worked as the Vancouver Public Library’s Indigenous Storyteller in Residence.
This performance will be a fascinating blend of education and music that will be melodious and inspirational with the Spruce Grove Public Library providing displays, activities, and take-and-make craft kits before and after the presentation.
