Ron Evans is the unofficial “Elder” of the Toronto Storytelling Festival. A regular performer and teacher at the festival going back to 1979, he carries the oral traditions of his Metis and Chippewa-Cree ancestries. He rarely chooses his stories ahead of time, since the stories he tells are in response to his listeners. His stories can be hilarious, moving, and life-changing.
