With support from The History Education Network, the First Story Toronto program at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto was able to host an 8-week summer project that provided the opportunity for four Indigenous youth living in Toronto to engage in learning about Toronto’s Indigenous history and to contribute to our collaborative community project, the First Story App.The four youth participants each independently created videos to be featured on the First Story App. Their task was to share stories relevant to the history of Indigenous communities in the region through creative and engaging video storytelling.
The videos were revealed on August 29, 2014 at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto. They are now available for viewing on the First Story App.
