WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Welcome,

As Indigenous people we know that learning happens in our homes and communities. From the day our children arrive we are their teachers, sharing our knowledge and teachings with them and helping them learn and grow.

This program honours our ways of knowing, and we offer opportunities to learn through events that focus on:

  • Working with our hands to create cultural items, arts, and more.

  • Sharing stories, laughs, and wonder.

  • Investigating the world through exploring ways to build, create, and experiment with ideas.

  • Learning new skills to improve our lives.

  • Celebrating the skills and teachings of our ancestors.

  • Honouring the love and joy found in our families and communities.

Join us for our (always) free events. The calendar below provides a listing of upcoming events. Registration is via the Eventbrite platform.
