Wednesday Sept. 14/11
Location: FIS Frankfurt , Germany
Today we did 4 presentations for the primary grades at FIS. Kai talked about the Wilderness International Program and how it involves and benefits us, The Cowichan People. During the presentation we told them what islands we camped at like Valdez Island, Sansum Point, and the Broken Islands. We showed pictures of canoes, cedar weaving, and many animals that we saw on our canoe outings as well as original to our home Animals and plants are important to our people because we use them as a food source, like our grandparents did. We performed for the children, singing the Ladies Honor Song and the Remembrance song. The children really enjoyed watching us. Afterwards we let them ask us questions, gave them post cards with a Bald Eagle on it as a souvenier. It was so much fun!
