Pauquachin Feast Oct 1st, 2010

On October 1rd, 2010 the Feasting for Change working group was invited to support the 4th Feast.

The focus of this day was to celebrate Pauquachin First Nation and the many skills of its members. Community members share their knowledge and skills about knitting, weaving, carving, and beading. They listened to Elders tell stories of traditional medicines. The kids piled into the community gym at the end of the school day, eager to learn and proud of their families knowledge. Everyone sat down to a delicious meal cooked by community members Mandy and Joan Henry. We feasted on crabs, salmon chowder, baked bread, berry and green salad and traditional tea.

It was a great day.

Pictures to follow.
