Barriere StoryWalk® recognizes Day of Sucwentwecw

Visit Fadear Park, April 7-14, to enjoy and celebrate the Day of Sucwentwecw all week long

Now that the weather is warming and the days are getting longer this is a good opportunity to enjoy time outside with your family. A great idea would be to check out the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library’s (TNRL) Barriere StoryWalk® in Fadear Park, and this would be an ideal week to do so?

The Barriere StoryWalk® is an innovative and exciting way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors while at the same time encouraging literacy, connection and play.

The Barriere StoryWalk® is where the pages of a story book are installed into easy to read signage around the oval in Fadear Park, it includes questions and interactions for all to enjoy.

From April 7-14, this special StoryWalk® will be helping to celebrate the Day of Sucwentwecw held April 7 as a school district-wide event that recognizes and celebrates the Secwepemc People (Secwepemcul’ecw) and other Aboriginal people residing within the Secwepemc Territory.

In collaboration with Leeann Eustache, Aboriginal Education Worker at Barriere Elementary School, the Barriere Library has installed ‘How Coyote Lost the Animal People’s Voices,’ Qiyenes re (written by) Kenthen Thomas, Secwepemc, in the StoryWalk®

Follow the pages of the book and enjoy walking and talking with your children as you read the story together.
