St. James to Host Mishoomis and Nikoomis Day

November 5, 2007 - St. James Catholic School in Lively will be hosting a Mishoomis and Nikoomis Day (Aboriginal Grandpa and Grandma Day)on Monday, November 12, 2007.

This year the St. James Catholic School Parent Council has initiated an Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Committee to promote Native cultural understanding and appreciation to both native and nonnative students. As part of this initiative, Grandparents of the St. James Catholic School’s Native students have been invited to visit the school to make a variety of presentations such as; eagle feather teaching, native craft making, aboriginal storytelling, how to clean a fish, how to do bead work, how to make moccasins, etc. One child in each class up has been linked up with their own grandparent (Mishoomis or Nikoomis) for the morning event.
