The stories children read help teach them about the world around them, instill lessons, and spark passions for new interests and ideas. But what would a child learn if there were no stories, videos and learning resources about their culture or in their language?
Our team works with Indigenous schools and communities across Canada to revitalize language and culture through the creation of Indigenous curriculum and learning material.
Sprig teamed up with Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey to produce three animated videos available in both English and Mi’kmaw that showcase Mi’kmaw stories and traditions. Created in collaboration with Canada Council for the Arts | Conseil des arts du Canada and The Art Department.

Enjoy Indigenous stories developed through a partnership between Sprig Learning and Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey. The interactive flip-book is available in multiple Indigenous languages and English and includes hidden sounds and animation to help early readers stay engaged in the story. Stories are available in three modes:
- Read-to-me mode with audio (in English and multiple Indigenous languages).
- Independent reading mode with no audio.
- No-word mode that allows teachers, parents and children to create their own story.
