    From October 2014 to February 2015, Grade 7 students in Karate have the opportunity to explore the rich culture of the FNMI in Canada. Various elders that work with the non-government organization: Ghost River Rediscovery come speak to the students about their culture.

    Students also get the chance to reconnect with nature. They have experienced many aspects, such as footprint tracking and recognizing bird calls.

  • Information for Educators

    Ghost River Rediscovery offers students the opportunity to explore the different aspects of FMNI culture.

There is no pre-planning involved for the sessions, though post-reflection is highly encouraged.
