Thursday Workshop Session

During this session the youth had the opportunity to start researching the themes they were interested in. The four themes (history, politics, spirituality and arts and culture) were broken down to topics such as drumming, lacrosse, residential schools etc. However, due to the nature of these topics the students had to break them down further and form sub topics. These included, the type of drums, the equipment used for lacrosse and the apology for the residential schools respectively. For the social justice activity we analyzed photos and discussed what they portrayed and how we felt while looking at them. We then received the annotation that was attached to the photo and compared and contrasted our thoughts to the ideas depicted by the person taking the photo. The goal of the activity was to show the ideas and the emotions we may have while glancing at the photo without any texts associated with it.
