Students from Tsi Shaihne School, Akwesasne First Nation | Feather Bundle Workshop

Feather Bundle | Sharing Circle Cultural Workshops

All Feather Bundle workshops are infused with valuable lessons that reflect respect for others, respect for our land and the animals that we share it with. We explore the value of talking circles within our systems of education – how they teach trust, respect and co-operation or in the case of adult workshops, we will practice and explore the healing and spiritual benefits of sharing circles and smudging ceremony. We also touch on traditional hunting practices, ornithology and bring a variety of feathers (including the famous Mr.T) for demonstration. 

Our Feather Bundle workshops are presented to school board administration, classrooms, libraries and gatherings across Ontario. We welcome both adults and children. Find our more about our workshops and hear our recent CBC interview from Featherston Drive Public School here.  

Our 2015-16 classrooms had their very own art exhibition!
