IEWSS hosts second annual Educational Pow Wow and Drum Social

On June 4, I.E. Weldon Secondary School, in partnership with the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) Indigenous Student Success Team, hosted the second annual End of the Year Educational Pow Wow and Drum Social. The event was in collaboration with Oshkaabewis Dave Rice of Wasauksing First Nation, Odawa Anishinaabe Metis Knowledge Holder, Larry O’Connor, and Elder Christpher Stock.

The event kicked off at the start of National Indigenous History Month and invited City of Kawartha Lakes schools to experience this celebration. Students and staff were guided through various teachable moments from Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee perspectives to increase understanding and engagement with Indigenous culture, traditions, protocols, dances, and music. Events such as these are important for strengthening community relationships and breaking down barriers or misconceptions about pow wows and drum socials.
