About this event

FOR CHILDREN 0-6 YEARS

On September 30th, EarlyON Markham, EarlyON Markham East and EarlyON Thornhill will commemorate the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. Honouring this day is an important step in the reconciliation process. It provides an opportunity to recognize and commemorate the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and to honour their survivors, their families and communities.

Join Us for a Very Special Celebration...

You and your child are invited to join EarlyON Markham, EarlyON Markham East and EarlyON Thornhill for a very special visit by Juliana Armstrong, author of This is What I've Been Told.

It's been said when teachings are passed down from one generation to the next, good things can happen. Language is learned, knowledge is shared and culture is practised. In this story of language preservation, Author/Illustrator and Anishnaabemowin language teacher Juliana Armstrong illuminates a number of Anishnaabemowin words along with their cultural connections, passed down from her Ojibway ancestors. Knowing our culture means knowing who we are. When we know who we are, we can walk in a good way.

When? Thursday, September 30 - 1:30 - 2:15 p.m.
