On National Aboriginal Day (June 21st), we celebrated the cultures and contributions of the Métis, First Nations and Inuit people of Canada at the Spirit Square. We sold bison burgers and smokies cooked by Mike Kubinec and served by Joan LaTrace and Lisa Maloney. Jackie and Charlotte Lever set up a tent to sell tickets for the burgers and sold sashes, t-shirts, flags, pins and other stuff. Maddy McCallum was invited to perform at the Big House and at Spirit Square, Nathaniel Arcand came with her. There was a fantastic crowd for the event, thanks to all the members who attended. Don’t forget Aboriginal Day on June 21, 2015.
NIMN hosted a free beading workshop for members at the Robron Centre on June 7th from 1-4pm. Keith showed us how to create embroidered and woven Metis designs using beads. It was lots of fun and those who attended decided they would like to get the chance to learn more about beading. We will be gathering again on Thursday, June 12th at the NIMN office in the Robron Centre.
