This is Roseau River First Nation's and Ginew School’s 14th Annual Gathering of Friends Education Celebration. This years theme is “Building a Network of Relationships” The Gathering of Friends is a unique opportunity to join us in celebrating the values, culture and history of Roseau River Anishinaabe First Nation. Every year we come together as friends to value each other’s stories and knowledge of our greatest treasure, our culture and traditions. We hope that you enjoy the many presentations and make the most out of this opportunity to make new friends.
Roseau River is an Ojibwe-speaking, Anishinaabe community located in Anishinaabe territory, also known as Treaty 1 territory.
By sharing our stories, songs, ceremonies and traditions, our children have an opportunity to see their inheritance anew. As we grow in our understanding and respect for Anishinaabe culture, our young people put increasing value on their role in carrying our knowledge forward to future generations. In this way, their value and pride in self builds a strong foundation for our Nation and for beautiful friendships with all our relations.
We have been overwhelmed with the response to our efforts to share our culture and teachings with our neighboring communities and we will continue to make our contribution to the education of all of our children.
