ArtsCan Circle celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day and we have a team of artist facilitators in Pikangikum First Nations community working with students from Eenchokay Birchstick School and Project Journey on creative arts workshops to celebrate the day and month-long celebrations by sharing artistic skills.

Unfortunately Waawaate Fobister (our Indigenous Grass Dancer / Performer) fell ill before the trip and wasn’t able to travel, however, we are so grateful and honoured that his dad, Roger Fobister former Chief of Grassy Narrows and a well-known grass dancer himself kindly offer to be in the community with ArtsCan and will work with students on recognizing and knowing the importance of this day and month.
