IAC Speaker Series with Dr.Yvonne Poitras-Pratt
Dr. Pratt’s research focuses on the use of new media,
particularly digital storytelling, as a means to revitalize
cultural traditions and intergenerational learning within Métis
communities. One community has now created 19 digital
stories about their lives as contemporary Métis. Yvonne has
also brought digital storytelling into an urban setting through
a partnership between Rupertsland Institute and the Council
of Elders at the Edmonton Catholic School District. Related to
this work is Dr. Pratt’s investigation into the relationship
between technology and traditional storytelling and how
technology can be used to reclaim voice and traditional ways
of knowing through multiple literacies.
