      ColleenClass: Bead a Flower Pin

      "I loved that Heather came around and asked each of us what we wanted to get out of that class. Then she did demos each class based on that."

      VanessaClass: Pottery Throwing Level 2

      "The program brought together an excellent group of people with different levels of treaty knowledge. I loved how Celina approached topics with openness and empathy. Her discussion of the generational impacts of residential schools was very moving. Additionally, her sharing of her family’s oral histories of negotiating and signing treaties was eye-opening."
