ABORIGINAL AWARENESS WEEK

 

Welcome to February UeaTers!

By now, many of you have received the February postcards in your mail or email…and you may be wondering, where are these events taking place? Without further ado, we would like to announce ABORIGINAL AWARENESS WEEK! Double click on the above image to make it large, or save it to your desktop to zoom in.

At UeaT, on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, you can have an Aboriginal themed meal for $3.00. Locations include MSB Cafeteria, Robarts Cafeteria, Sid’s Cafe, Howard Ferguson Dining Hall, Veda and Sammys. Also, from February 8, 2010 until February 12, 2010, you can participate in one of the many events organized by FIrst Nations House. Please visit their website for details on the events.

We would like to thank the following individuals at First Nations House for helping us understand Aboriginal cultures, art and writing: Mykelle Pacquing (who translated English into syllabics used on this poster), Terry Spanish (who translated English words to Ojibwe words used on this poster), Grafton Antoine (who translated English words to Oneida words used on this poster), Lindy Kinoshameg for letting us borrow the art featured on the top right with the 7 feathers and the CN tower, and Rochelle and Jackie at First Nations House for their help and support.
Stay tuned for details on Chinese New Year!
