On Sept. 25, 2013, in the Long House at T’Sou-ke First Nation, I was honoured as an Aboriginal Role Model by School District #62 (Sooke) along with many others who share their heart, wisdom, and skills with students.
I was very proud to be in such good company and to be included in the blanketing ceremony. It was an evening I won’t forget. Many thanks to Kathleen King-Hunt and the other people in SD #62’s Aboriginal Education program for putting on this wonderful gathering and for their ongoing vision and hard work.
Thanks also to T’Souke First Nation for hosting this event and providing the great meal, to the Drum Group, and to Quw’utsun Tzinquaw for their dances.
