The Old Man with the Otter Medicine

Dear Students,

Today we listened to the Aboriginal Story of the Dene people called, “The Old Man with the Otter Medicine.”  It was a story about a village in the winter.  The people are hungry and there is no fish.  They seek help from the old medicine man.  The Old Medicine Man gets help from the otter in a very special way.

What does this story tell us about animals and this First Nations people?  What do you find interesting about this story?  Please share your ideas.

From, Ms Sim
