Teach the Children Well


by Helen Sylliboy


art: Discovering Wisdom by Cecil Bell


Discovering Wisdom by Cecil BellWe teach Mi'kmaq immersion in our school in pre-school, kindergarten, primary and in our day care. Please teach your child Native values and language while they are small.

  • Respect of self

  • Elders
  • Mother Earth
  • Traditional chants and drumming.

We teach them prayers every morning over the PA in the Native language, and 1 lesson every day like;

  • Be a good friend
  • Go visit Grandma " kiju" and help clean her house for her
  • Clean up the environment
  • Be nice to your pet
  • Or anything we think that will help the child become a good Indian.
