J is native, from the Stolo nation.
We have great pride in teaching our girls about their heritage.
But since his family is over on the mainland we seldom get to watch/partake in festivities and events.
They were able to watch dancing and listen to the drumming and the singing.
It was so rich in native culture.
The sense of pride and history told in throughout generations in the ancient ways of dancing and singing is thrilling to experience.
Crammed into a longhouse, filled with smoke from the fire and the singing and chanting is mesmerizing.
The girls came home and started to do their own dances and chants.
The girls had their fill of bison stew, baked salmon and of course bannock.
