Sharing Ghostly Stories

Storytelling has been an important means of passing on oral history over the centuries. Yesterday we visited the site of a former building in La Ronge that was said to be haunted. Our monthly assembly was devoted to ghostly stories and the origins of Halloween. This live web conference was attended by online learners who took time out from their personal schedules to participate and share their stories. We connected a laptop to a wireless modem, turned on a web cam and strolled around the site of the haunting during the conference.
After the conference was over, the laptop and camera found it's way up to the CBC La Ronge studio to visit with Tom Roberts.
If you would like to see what took place, listen to some stories and find out more about the origins of Halloween, click on the link to the recorded session. The recording is approximately 45 minutes in length.
