Sharing our Culture

On March 2nd, 3rd and 4th, students from Allison Bernard Memorial High School visited several schools within the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board to teach other students about their culture, while at the same time, debunking the many myths and stereotypes that are often held about First Nations people. The event was coordinated by Brenda MacIssac, Literacy Consultant, in partnership with ABMHS and CBVRSB. With the assistance of their teachers Ron Martin and Rita Gould, they prepared several presentations and displays to share with and educate the students . They taught about Mi’kmaq dancing, waltes, basket making, the seven sacred teachings and so much more. The teachers and students in the schools were fascinated by our students and really appreciated the work that was put into this event. The knowledge and pride in their culture was evident. Great job!
