Join Sherryl Sewepagaham and learn some of the songs and dances of the First Nations and Métis people. You will learn original and social traditional language and chant songs using hand drums, sticks, and rattles. Sherryl has also taught the Orff methodology in her classroom and will share some of those activities that she has developed. Bring a recording device as many of the songs are taught in the traditional style of “oral tradition” so that you can share with your students.
