“When we gathered together as a community to share a meal, we were humbled to hear the story of the Samson Cree Nation’s traditional dance and the importance of dance to their people. It was an empowering celebration and a truly inspiring day that spoke to the power of bringing traditional culture and new ways of learning together.”
