Residential School Survivors Update

…also children and Grandchildren of survivors of residential school.
Happy New Year to everyone out there and trust that your Christmas break was enjoyable with your loved ones.

On Jan. 11 & 12, 2010 Marlene Hanuse will start up her button blanket night at 6:00 P.M. – 8 P.M. For those of you who have not finished with their project. Marlene has been cutting material for dresses with fringes or tassels and there are ten dresses. The color of the dresses is red and six dresses are already spoken for.

I have picked up 250 paddles made by Darrin Blaney from Homalco if you choose to put them on your dress.

No news yet from the Aboriginal Healing Foundation whether or not this I.R.S.project will continue after the fiscal year. Although just before the Christmas break, I did receive a questionnaire in regards to the project, in what therapy works, whether it be music, drumming, music writing, that sort of questions. So it is at least hopeful for the project to continue.

Honor Yourself: Honor the man or woman that you are. Take the risk to express your dream. Taking action is about living fully and expressing what you are. By Don Miguel Ruiz
