We are very excited that we started our place based learning about the history and culture of where we live and play. Our school is on traditional Annishinabe territory and to facilitate our place based learning we are doing teachings from Annishinabe community members and organisations throughout the winter, the traditional time for Annishinabe to pass traditions and culture through teaching, storytelling and play.
Today we had Amy Desjarlais – Amy Desjarlais is from Wasauksing First Nation,
located on the shores of Georgian Bay, Ontario Canada.
Ojibway/Potawotomi, Beaver Clan of the Anishinabeg Nation.
Innovator, Reiki, Writer, Indigenous Knowledge keeper. Amy promotes optimism, determination and movement forward.; Amy uses creative expression and her own personal experience to remind others of their inherent sacredness.
Amy gave teachings on the drum, it’s origins and taught some songs to the children. We look forward to having her back!
