Thanks to Evelyn and Henry we had some samples of some delicious foods. Roe, Crabs, Mussels and Clams. Delicious!
The youth looking at all the history of their community. Evelyn brought archive pictures, many documents and history of the community. The youth were so interested in how the community used to look and how their ancestors used to use and access the land. By Canoe! Maps also showed the territorial lines along with modern day maps.
Earl Claxton Jr and Lewis Williams from Tsawout came out and shared their teachings as well. Lewis took 14 youth on a nature walk and Earl set up a cooking station for all the traditional food.
Darryl Barker making his famous bannock. He shared his baking skills with all of us. It was delicious.
Tina showing the youth how the cob over works and getting ready to cook the personal pizzas.
Narcess sharing his carvings. Amazing work!
The knitting station.
The purpose of the day was to have each community member set up an interactive display showcasing their knowledge, skills and abilities. Over 50 Adults, youth and children shared stories, skills and their passions.
The pictures above only capture some of the beautiful people and stories that were shared. We thank everyone for their time, knowledge, experience and resources.
