Reflections on Indigenous Awareness Week at McGill

by Lori Beavis, Artist-in-Residence, Dept. of Integrated Studies in Education

I attended the Opening Ceremony at Thomson House. Delbert Sampson and Jean Stevenson gave the welcome and elder blessing. Unfortunately the keynote speaker was unable to attend as he had gone fishing and was caught in the middle of the St Laurent River at the scheduled time. Two members, Nakha Bers and Emilie Monnett of the song and drumming group, Odaya were there to perform and close the opening luncheon.
