March 3, 2010 - Dylan Spanish, a First Nation student at St. Andrew Catholic Elementary School proudly spoke of his family heritage and cultural traditions during the school's annual Heritage Fair. According to Dylan, "the N'Swakmok Friendship Center in downtown Sudbury is where he spends time after school participating in cultural programs". Dylan likes the Center's youth activities and goes there every Tuesday and Wednesday after school. Dylan also stated that, "not only am I proud of my heritage, but I also am proud to share what I know with my friends and teachers at school. I feel good telling them about the medicine wheel and what it means." Dylan further explained that, "the medicine wheel has four colours on it. The fours colours represent all races on Mother Earth and how everyone is equal and has gifts from the Creator." Dylan also explained what traditional medicines were and how they are used during a sweat lodge. Dylan will represent his school at the Regional Heritage Fair at Laurentian University on May 6, 2010. Congratulations Dylan!
