The grade 6 class at Ecole Centennial School had the opportunity the do some hide scraping. These students showed perseverance and determination to get 3 hides scraped in 2 days as well as a moose hide. The grade 6’s had the opportunity to use traditional tools (moose leg bones). After students scrapped the hides, they then took the hides and turned them into traditional hand drums. Students also had the opportunity to make ribbon skirts with the Indigenous director from the school board.
Moving forward, Ecole Centennial students plan to go to each classroom explaining what they have made and what these objects represent in the Indigenous culture. Students will also share how these objects bring people together and celebrate beauty.
