THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED: INDIGENOUS STORY TELLING: LEARNING THROUGH THE EYES OF THE CHILD
It was a two wonderful evenings, and the turn out was great. Please see the two video's from these different events. Our first Video is from N'Amerind Friendship Centre from November 9th, 2019, the second video is from Chippewa of the Thames Community Centre from November 18th, 2019.
"London Bridge Educators want to express their gratitude to the N’Amerind Friendship Centre for opening their doors on Saturday for the ‘Indigenous Story Telling: Learning through the eyes of the Child’ facilitated by the Aboriginal Babies and Beyond Coalition in partnership with Strive. We enjoyed listening to the story ‘Eagle Feather~An Honour’ written and illustrated by Ferguson Plain, and appreciated the tour of the Friendship Centre. As Early Childhood Educators it is important for us to know the resources available in our community. Thank you for sharing. #ldnbridgecares #earlylearning #community #ldnont#storytelling #nurturingcuriousminds #kindhearts@striveswo @myabbc” Instagram
On February 24th, 2020, Aboriginal Babies and Beyond Coalition held ABBC Storytelling and Legends at the Oneida Nation of the Thames Community Centre.
First Nations, Inuit, and Metis cultures have long passed on knowledge from generation to generation through oral traditions, including storytelling during the winter months. Educators, Professionals and Families all came together to share stories, songs and learn Lunaape Language, Oneida Language, and Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe Language).
Anushiik, Miigwech, Yaw^ko, Thank you to our speakers and to everyone who attended. It is our hope that continue this each year after COVID-19.
