Cultural Day at Breton Elementary School
Posted on September 15th, 2016
The morning began with the return of author, musician, and First Nations advocate David Bouchard. David spent the morning speaking to the students on topics from love, respect and passion to difficult conversations about residential schools and Canada's path to reconciliation. He also has a cool watch.
“The meaning of life is to find your gift.The purpose of life is to give it away.”
David’s gift is storytelling. Through stories and Native flutes, he teaches and inspires students, parents and educators alike. Over the past 15 years, he has captivated and enlightened over a million people the world over; from India to China…from the U.K. to Texas…from Newfoundland to the Northwest Territories.

With the dedicated support of the Crier Family, Breton Elementary has hosted the second Pow Wow in 3 years. Filled with dancing, history and drumming, this was a experience that will stay with the students and all in attendance. We are so honored to be using the land of the First Nations People, and to share in its history and traditions.
