Metis Art

Mrs. Lintott, our librarian, and Ms. Komurcu, our Aboriginal Education Assistant, worked with the grade 3 and 4 students in division 8, 9, and 10 to create some beautiful Metis art based on the book, “The Giving Tree” by Leah Marie Dorion. The book is a beautiful retelling of a traditional Metis story emphasizing core values and beliefs of the Metis, which includes strength, kindness, courage, tolerance, honesty, respect, love, sharing, caring, balance, patience, and most of all, the important connection with the Creator and Mother Earth.
