“Part of my goal and what I currently do for work full time is let people know about the success, pride and passion of my Kwantlen family and what has been accomplished through our community.”Wiyé.nox/Luke Dandurand
Wiyé.nox ‐ the man of sound. A name earned and gifted from the Elders of Kwantlen First Nation and his hereditary chief Marilyn Gabriel, for his extensive background in music and capabilities of public speaking. Part of my goal and what I currently do for work full time is let people know about the success, pride and passion of my Kwantlen family and what has been accomplished through our community.
Workshop: The Kwantlen 7 Laws
You will learn:
Strength, resiliency, and working together.
In the largest middle school in the province of British Columbia, Yorkson Creek Middle School has found a way by working together through goals through the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ language in finding one heart and one mind. Connecting community, the outdoors, oral traditions and finding our allies and advocates. Students strive to find moments of silence during their week even when distractions, sounds and noise are easy to come across with over 1,200 people in the building on a daily basis. With the understanding that Aboriginal teachings outdoors in a circle by the water and the trees is just as valuable and equal from the books or technology that helps shapes their lives. This idea is one that is simple, but the most profound when they take the moment to sit down and listen to what mother nature and the First Nations teachings have to say. Participants will also take part in an activity that involves the power of silence and resiliency.
