Beaded Bracelets for Shannen

May 6, 2011 - The story of Shannen Koostachin who stood up for what she believed made a strong impression on Native Studies students of St. Charles College, who decided to give her a helping hand. Shannen, a member of Attawapiskat First Nation, believed that all children in Canada deserve the best start in education, regardless of where they live or where they come from. Tragically, Shannen died in a car accident in 2010 and Shannen's Dream was created- a charity to support the children of Attawapiskat in their quest for a proper school. The Native Studies students beaded bracelets and baked cupcakes to sell at St. Charles College, to support Shannen's Dream on April 27th, the National Day of Action. “Shannen showed great courage in speaking up for the children on Parliament Hill. It felt good to support her dream,”said Native Studies student, Leeann Peltier.
