Once upon a time one way-back day, long ago and far away, before the beginning of time, before the beginning of everything, before there was a beginning, there was a storyteller.

Storytelling is the beginning of everything. Storytellers were our first teachers, artists, philosophers, and priests. Stories told us how to understand the world. Stories are the roots of everything we know – our culture, our philosophy and our religion.

Stories explained the unexplainable, from how the world was formed, to why the loon has a necklace. Stories provided our first entertainment. And stories brought us together to create our first communities.

Enjoy storytelling in the warmth of The Strong Badger Coffeehouse, 679 Sargent, February 24th from 6:30-8:30 pm at “Stone Soup” sponsored by the Manitoba Storytelling Guild/Conteurs du Manitoba. This event is free and open to the public.
