LITERACY MONTH

HONOURING INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
Summer, 2022
by Strini Reddy
 
Since the children and youth in our partner communities have had a very challenging 2 school years, we decided to do as much as we can to enable the communities to provide as many fun learning and recreational activities as possible over the summer.  We consulted with the communities to determine how best we could do this.
 
We initially tried to work in partnership with other like-minded organizations so that we could increase our capacity and impact. In particular, we wanted to collaborate with MFNERC. Unfortunately, after a promising beginning, our efforts at collaboration failed.  However, we were able to get Wpg Aboriginal Sports Achievement Centre (WASAC) to offer summer programs in two of the communities, Lac Brochet and Shamattawa.
 
S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)
 
I sought the assistance of one of my former students, a teacher who is now a widely recognized, award winning leader in this field, to help us offer S.T.E.A.M. activities in 2 of our partner communities over the summer.  Consultations were held with local leaders about program and needs.  Unfortunately, they were not able to offer the program this summer but plans are being made to do this in the fall.
 
SUMMER LITERACY PROGRAMS
 
We worked with our partners, Frontier College, to enable the offering of fun literacy development activities in Red Sucker Lake, St Theresa Point and God’s River.  Two instructors have been hired for 5 weeks in each community and training is being provided.  All necessary materials and resources are being sent into the communities.
