We will begin gathering at 08:30am and proceed as planned. Earlier, it was announced that the ceremony would begin at 7:30am.
A few additional details:
- Individually wrapped portions will be offered to those who can and wish to enjoy that.
- Please bring your own cup of coffee or tea to have with your bannock
While we cannot safely have a traditional potluck as part of our ceremony, you can contribute to a community feast by bringing a non-perishable food item for donation. We will deliver the donations to the Bear Clan Patrol at the end of the day.
Orange Shirt or Ribbon
Please remember to wear an orange shirt or ribbon to the fire to honour Phyllis Webstad and all people who have and continue to be impacted by the history of the Indian residential school system. Learn more about Phyllis’s story here.
People we support who are interested in taking on the role of Fire Keeper at anytime during the day are invited to contact Andrew Terhoch, and view and listen to this video. White Eagle, who offers the teaching in the video, will once again be present on the 29th to support people in that role.
