Connection Circle

About the Connection Circle

Granny Grampa Connections Box Image.pngThe Granny and Grampa Connections Box is an interactive resource that includes cultural items and gifts such as a drum, rattle, a Métis sash and stuffed animals. Granny and Grampa are interchangeable puppets designed to engage parents and families in exploring their own cultural teachings and identities as First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. The connections box is rooted in the values, beliefs and strengths that are important to pass on to our children – it recognizes and honours the diversity of children, families, communities and First Nations living in British Columbia.

Connections - cropped + compressed.jpgThe Connections Circle is to support and promote the importance of traditional ways of early learning, through play, songs, stories, and the healthy development and wellbeing of all Aboriginal children, their families and their communities. This circle will illustrate how learning our identity, culture and language are critical aspects in raising healthy children. The emphasis is on the important roles of grandparents and elders as teachers, mentors and knowledge-holders of how to care for and teach our children.

A light healthy snack will be provided with coffee and tea for parents and caregivers.

Everyone is welcome.

The Connection Circle will be held in Clearwater, Barriere, and Blue River. 
Dates and Times - To Be Announced.
