"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.

Sunday May 10th is Bear Witness Day

Jordan’s Principle is a child-first principle and legal rule named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. It ensures First Nations children receive the services and supports they need when they need them.
May 10, is Spirit Bear’s birthday and an important date in the history of Jordan’s Principle. The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal’s first non-compliance order called for Canada to fully implement Jordan’s Principle by May 10, 2016. Sadly, it took several years and further non-compliance orders against Canada before any real progress was made.
There are several ways to “Bear Witness” on May 10th.
Post your images of teddy bears in a show of support and solidarity:
·Show your support and “Bear Witness” to Jordan’s Principle by sharing on social media a teddy bear at your workstation (at home or otherwise) on May 10th.
·Post attached images on your social media feeds prior to May 10th and invite others to join “Bear Witness” the same way.
Watch and share these videos to learn more about Jordan’s Principle:
