Weaving Words Celebration Underway
Prince George, B.C. – The 10th annual Weaving Words Celebration is underway at the University of Northern British Columbia and around Prince George
The event, which showcases the diversity of Aboriginal storytelling, features the talents of special guests like author and journalist Waubgeshig Rice – who is back after “a very fulfilling experience” three years ago.
“I was first here in 2012 and just had a phenomenal time. I met so many great people and had the privilege of sharing some of my stories and some of my career experience.”
Rice, who hails from the Wasauksing First Nation in Ontario, says he’ll be doing more of the same this week.
“Basically I just want to meet people and answer their questions and share with them my stories.”
UNBC’s Writer in Residence Janet Rogers will also be participating.
“I’m part of the welcome event this evening and then I’m actually going to be part of a panel Thursday afternoon, it’s called ‘Love Medicine,’ but actually we’re going to be presenting indigenous erotica,” she says. “We hosted something like this last year and it was hilarious.”
