  Goes Back, b'y    Tales and Yarns

 

Storytelling, or "spinning a Yarn", has always been the main method of passing down the Newfoundland culture from generation to generation. Years ago, people would gather in a person's home and exchange stories into the wee hours of the night.

Nowadays, with the invent of the television and internet, the storytelling tradition is dying off, and with it an important piece of Newfoundland heritage and culture.

This section hopes to capture a piece of this culture to prevent it from slipping forever away from us.

 

If you have heard a story, maybe from your grandparents or great-grandparents, that you wish to pass on to future generations, then submit your Yarn by clicking here.
