In reference to the storyteller N. Scott Momaday (1998) writes,

We are informed by his sounds, transported by his images, and, finally, moved to contemplate the implications of what we have been told. His words are powerful and persuasive. They are creations that create listeners in the process of the telling. (p.78)

This session will feature a series of Digital Stories created by urban Indigenous, students, parents and teachers. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion addressing issues in urban Indigenous Education.
