Aboriginal Awareness Month at Brentwood School
by Linda Tweedhope - Thursday, 30 April 2015, 10:46 AM

June 21st is Aboriginal Awareness Day in Canada and rather than celebrate on one day in June we are going to celebrate throughout the month of May.

For the four weeks of May we will have Aboriginal artists, authors and teachers coming into our school to teach about a variety of topics including:

  • An author visit by Michael Kusujak, an Inuit storyteller who wrote A Promise is a Promise with Robert Munch, as well as many other well known stories.
  • Metis Jigging and Storytelling
  • Lacrosse Demonstration
  • WSANEC Drumming and Singing
  • Bone Game/Lahal Demonstration
