Elkford students have a taste of Aboriginal Culture

As part of BC Arts & Culture Week students at Elkford Secondary School  and Rocky Mountain Elementary School were given the opportunity to learn about Aboriginal Culture through a series of in-class and whole school presentations.

The events included art classes with Blackfoot artist Charles Bullshields Jr, Taste of Aboriginal Culture which gave the entire school population an opportunity to try fresh baked bannock with Mrs. Trozzo and to learn about Ktunaxa language and culture with Joe Pierre Jr. The highlight of the week was a Regailia and dance presentation by First Nation dancers; Leon Cranebear of the Blackfoot Nation and Eldene Stanley of the Ktunaxa Nation.
