This morning we were lucky to have Mr. Lyndon Linklater from the Office of the Treaty Commissioner come to speak with us about Treaties and First Nations Culture. He played his drum and did some singing for us too. He had a special ribbon shirt that his mother had made for him. The ribbons on the shirt stand for water, air, animals and fire. Mr. Linklater said that his mushom and kokum (grandpa and grandpa) had told him many stories about respecting the earth and what it provides us.
He also told us a very funny story about 5 brothers with magical powers. Ask your child if they remember any of the powers.
I do have some pictures, but technology is not my friend today and they won’t load….I will try and add them tomorrow. 🙂
