November 4, 2014 - Binoojiiyeg Wiidooktaadwin Mentors Program

I am inviting community members and program staff that would be interested in participating as "Mentors" in a program called "Binoojiiyeg Wiidooktaadwin". Binoojiyeg Wiidooktaadwin is a cultural-based program with focus on activities that will have participants "getting back to the land". Mentors will provide sharing and activities with focus on cultural/traditional knowledge and language. Programming will offer activities for children and youth of the Saugeen First Nation, but all ages are welcome to participate. Family participation is encouraged. Many activities could be included - here are some suggestions, but not limited to: Hiking Plant and Trees (Wild Edibles, Medicinal plants) Canoeing Cultural-based games Ceremonies Traditional Teachings Roles & Responsibilities (male/female) Dancing Regalia Making Knowledge about animals & their habitat Arts & Crafts Hunting & Trapping Fishing Survival Skills Water Storytelling Cooking (and so much more) Anishnaabemowin (would like to have this incorporated throughout programming) I'd mentioned this project at the meetings held to plan for School-Aged Children's Programming, so I would definitely like to have this programming open to existing groups as well. I will be holding a meeting on Friday afternoon (Nov. 7) @ 1pm for those interested in participating as "Mentors". Please bring your ideas as to what you could offer as a Mentor to this program. If you are not able to attend this meeting, feel free to send me a message as to your interests. Once I have a list of Mentors established, a schedule of activities will be drawn up.
