Half Day Program


Traditionally, Indigenous peoples did not learn through a school system like we have today, but rather they learned from their ancestors.  This was done by listening to stories told by family members or Elders, by playing games designed to hone skills necessary for everyday living with older siblings, and by creating art and learning crafts passed down by their family members.  In this program students will learn about Indigenous ways of knowing and learning through storytelling, discussion, traditional games and art.  This program also introduces students to the traditional Ojibway clan system.
