I managed to convince the boys to come out with me today to an aboriginal culture day at the local museum and archives (it helped that their good friend from next door was willing to come, too). Although it wasn't a huge event, I think it was still worth our time. The kids checked out the different displays,
Saw some beautiful art work and crafts,
Listened to some traditional throat singers and a Metis fiddler,
and played on a huge tee pee.
Definitely worth the trip! And hey, if it makes me feel a bit more relaxed about how little we have been working on our Canadian history lately, so much the better...
