In addition to our regular lineup of fabulous drumming and dancing, this year we are introducing "Passport to Knowledge Stations," which will run from 1-4 pm. They are designed for people to visit at their own leisure.

1) Ojibway Artist Rene Meshake: Rene will be discussing his artwork and some of the symbology behind it. As well as playing a traditional flute, Rene is an accomplished artist, and is getting a Diamond Jubilee award for his artwork.
 
2) Christine Skye is from Six Nations. She comes with a wealth of traditional knowledge. She carries the teachings on corn, as well as being a ceremonial leader in our community. Christine will be at our Iroquois cornbread making station held in the WAEC kitchen. Christine is also a traditional healer. Check out the youtube clip below to see Christine.
 
3) Roy Willcox, Carmen Thomas: These men bring with them the teachings of firekeepers. ​Roy is Anishnawbe, while Carmen is from the Cayuga Nation. Roy and Carmen have been firekeepers for 20 years, and are eager to share their traditional knowledge on firekeeping and tobacco tie-making.
 
4) Jan Sherman and Lois MacDonald are doing our traditional storytelling. Both women are knowledgeable on Anishnabe culture. Jan is a gifted orator, and Lois is a gifted sewer who has had the opportunity to learn many teachings from various elders. Both women openly share their wisdom and knowledge.
 
We also have 23 craft vendors and seven food vendors lined up. Our aim is for this to be a fun, family oriented interactive day.
