"L'honneur de l'un est l'honneur de tous", Congrès 2018
SET 6 Séances de 90 minutes le samedi 7 juillet 15 h 30
‘Elders in Residence’
La First Peoples House of Learning (« Maison du savoir » des Premières Nations) a invité des Aînés de la région à venir rencontrer les participants au congrès. L’invitation en a également été faite, au nom de SC-CC, à des Aînés d’ailleurs en Ontario et au Canada. Ces rencontres prendront la forme de « cercles d’apprentissage » le vendredi et le samedi en après-midi autour d’un feu sacré, dans le tipi qui se trouve sur le site de l’université de Trent, à une courte distance de marche de la résidence College Gzowski. Ces moments privilégiés nous permettront d’écouter et de réfléchir ensemble à différentes approches relatives à la signification et à l’importance du conte pour les peuples autochtones. Nous aurons ainsi, tous, l’occasion d’un peu mieux nous connaître et nous comprendre, dans le respect de la culture et des pratiques de chacun.

Participants: All welcomeEna Greyeyes Bio :
Ena Greyeyes is a Plains Cree Elder from the Muskeg Lake First Nation in Saskatchewan. Ena grew up in an environment where Elder occupied a crucial role in her traditional upbringing. Her childhood was deeply imparted by the presence of her maternal grandfather, who, as an adept storyteller, taught the children of the importance and value of respect, honesty, obedience and generosity. Animals and well known mythical figures like Wesakeccahk often occupied important roles in the stories to capture the imagination and reinforce lessons of moral value. Some stories were born of the moment while others belonged to the culture and were passed on from generation to generation through oral history. www.enagreyeyes.com
