Inspiring Relationships and Building Community in the Family Centre

February 22, 2018
Many families within our Lavallee community have been gathering in our Family Centre every week to participate in a program called, "Little Metis Sing with Me."  During this time, children and their families share interactive songs and rhymes with a Metis flair, books, jigging, spoon playing and traditional food.  
Each week, some of the time we spend together is designated to parents having an opportunity to discuss cultural and parenting topics as well as participating in some hands-on learning activities. The children can dress up in traditional clothing and participate in centre based activities.
Each session closes with a round dance and a celebration of friendship.  Parents and children join hands in a circle and dance to the sound of a beating drum.  The beat of the drum reminds us of the heartbeat of community and everyone moves as one.
