During the 2020-2021 school year students made Métis Dot Paintings, Finger Drums and participated in finger weaving.
Our school's big project was to create a Community Drum. Students first put their good intentions into the drum, and then worked together to tied the cow hides tight. All students made their own drum sticks using sticks, sinew and cow hide, and they decorated them with dot artwork.
