Welcome November, A time of reflection as we transition from fall to winter. The days are getting colder and I have been making more soups and stews. It is back to my crocheting, knitting and sewing.
What does November look like for me so far. Lots to do.
November 08th is National Indigenous Veterans Day. I will be attending the memorial event here in Peace River, Alberta.
November 11th is National Veteran's Day. Please consider attending a memorial event and wearing a poppy to honor our veterans.
I honour both days as my late father was in the army and volunteered to serve this country and protect the land. He was buried in his Legion blazer as was his wish.
Some of the great events we host is the May MMIWG walk and gathering, Sept 30 TRC/Orange Shirt Day Walk and Gathering, October 05 Sisters in Spirit Walk and Gathering. There is also an Annual Peace River Pow wow usually in June, this year will be a traditional event so I will be making my regalia so I can dance in 2023.
The Centre for Suicide Prevention has in-person and virtual workshops that I facilitate regularly.
This month I have a:
Little Cub: Talking about suicide for Indigenous children under 12,
River of Life: Indigenous Youth Suicide Prevention
Walk with Me: Indigenous Suicide Bereavement.
I also am delivering an in-person Grief and Loss workshop at the Mamowintowin Hall in Cadotte Lake on November 23rd. See below for more information.
Ay Hiy, Kinanaskomitin. Thank you.
