The Holy Family Catholic School community hosted a mini pow-wow earlier this month. Grade 5 to 8 students, along with their fellow students from Christ The King and St. Elizabeth Catholic Schools, participated in the event. Students engaged in learning more about First Nations dancers and their regalia and participated in lacrosse-related activities. They were also treated to traditional foods, including fry bread. Elder Eric shared stories and many life lessons. He encouraged the students to never lose their faith, to be proud of their cultural heritage and to be thankful for what they have. In the months leading up to the pow-wow, Holy Family students had taken part in a series of cultural diversity workshops celebrating and recognizing many gifts.
