Indian Legends of Eastern Canada.
Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Toronto (Ontario). Education Div.
Twenty stories relative to American Indian culture are printed as they were prepared by Indian ladies attending a 4-week summer course for the training of teacher aides. Each participant in the workshop, held at Centennial College in Toronto, was asked to record a story from her home reservation so the stories could be shared with others. The intent was that the legends be used in storytelling time in primary grades when the teacher aides returned to their home schools. It is hoped that this approach will encourage parents and teachers to record more of the folklore of their people for the benefit and enjoyment of children everywhere. (DB)
