The grass dance

National Indigenous Peoples Day was marked throughout Chatham-Kent June 21 and included a special gathering and celebration at the Ska:Na Family Centre in Chatham. Here, Cole Shipman of Bkejwanong Territory dances the grass dance to the drumming and song of the Snye Creek Singers. In addition to the Chatham event, both the St. Clair Catholic District School Board and the Lambton Kent District School Board offered a full slate of educational experiences to mark the occasion.
