The telling of our aadsookaanan always provided a time during which family and friends gathered together. Storytelling times provided opportunities to strengthen the bonds and relationships between people. Remembering the storytimes with her father, Louis Goodchild, Thelma appreciates the importance of ensuring that our aadsookaanan remain a significant part of our lives as Biigtigong Nishnaabeg. Thelma wants to ensure that our aadsookaanan continue to connect our children with our ancestors and strengthen our Nishnaabe being.
