Learning about First Nations Culture at Sudbury Catholic Summer School


July 28, 2015 - Summer students of Sudbury Catholic School's First Nations, Metis and Inuit Summer Literacy Camp were treated to a special presentation by Brandon Petahtegoose of Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. Brandon is a recent graduate of Indigenous Studies at Trent University and a grass dancer. Brandon shared stories and songs about the grass dance, different kinds of pow wow dancing and stories about the drum. He also shared some Anishnaabemowin (Ojibway language) teachings. The students enjoyed the interactive presentation and were invited to participate in the upcoming Pow Wow in Atikameksheng Anishnawbek on July 25-26th, along with their families.
