WÁHTA IS HERE!
To some of us pancake lovers, it's the most wonderful time of the year - the sap is running! After the warm temperatures last week, the children went out into our own "forest" in our back yard and tapped the Wahta (Maple) trees for some oronhtákeri (sap water). They then offered tobacco to give thanks for the medicine and yummy treats offered to us by the trees. In the near future, when our buckets are full, we will boil it to make some delicious maple taffy and syrup that we will use at the Center. We will continue our celebration of Wahta at the Kanonhsesne on Wednesday, March 26th. See your child's teacher for more information.
