De-ba-jeh-mu-jig (Storytellers) Theatre Hits Home

Students from the Native Studies and Native Language classes from St. Charles College and Marymount Academy stopped at Zaawmiknaang’s in Wikwemikong. Zaawmiknaang means ‘the place of the brown beaver’.

May 10, 2010 - The drizzly weather did not dampen the spirits of our Native Studies and Native Language students from St. Charles College and Marymount Academy, on their outing to Manitoulin Island. The students saw the play “The Indian Affairs” by Debajemujig Theatre, which has central themes of understanding Aboriginal People’s worldview and place in the social fabric of Canada. The students toured a few of the historical sites of Wikwemikong and had a lunch celebration at Zaawmiknaang Outdoor Eatery- owned and operated by Martina Osawamick, the grandmother and auntie of a few of our Native Studies & Language students. It was a wonderful learning experience and the students are hoping to return next year.
