National Aboriginal Day 2017 at Maude Burke School

June 22, 2017

A host of wonderful presenters, messages, activies and fun was had at Maude Burke School and the Melfort Museum on Wednesday June 21st! 

A huge thanks to Gailmarie Anderson of the Melfort Museum, the Marguerite Riel Centre and the many volunteers that joined us and also to those that were behind the scenes organizing, barbecuing, etc!

The students had a wonderful educational experience!

Students had a chance to witness an amazing presenter, and archeologist from the U of S who has mastered the art of flint carving arrowheads and other items - in fact, he created an outstanding arrowhead during the short time he was with us!

A highlight for the students and staff was a dance presentation by Ray, of Duck Lake, Sk. 

Ray created a painting for the school - he talked of the symbolism and importance of the Eagle and shared that his picture depicted the Eagle looking over the education of the students - The eagle and the wings were the adult partners watching over the education  and student learning- the teepee represented the school of learning, the horses the transportation and the Eagle feathers feature the achievements of the past and present students.

Enjoy some of the pictures from the day!
