Longhouse Family Night in Partnership
September 8, 2020 - June 30, 2021
This Longhouse project is to build upon an existing program that has been growing and evolving over 20 years. Creative partnerships continue to come on board as we share this evening with more people. Longhouse is a 2-hour Indigenous evening program beginning with rhyming song, prayer, supper, feeling round; then either any of the following categories; (or a combination thereof): values, stories, seminars, Triple P Parenting, ALAPS, crafts, drumming, dancing, vision boards, games, films, speakers, play, parties, walks, basic life skills, writing groups, sharing circles, instructional learning and meditation. The program runs for 26 weeks with special events interspersed with seasonal celebrations; culminating in a pow-wow June 21 to celebrate participants, families, helpers and partners. Current partners for this project are Brightview School, E4C, SAGE, Native Counselling Services, The Learning Center, THE ORANGE HUB (TOH), and Yellowhead Tribal College (YTC).
