Debajehmujig Storytellers taking part In literacy Day at the Assignack Public School. After some reading with the students, we presented a demonstation of improve games for the kids to give them an idea of exercises we play to help us in creation. We always love when the students are glad to take part.
Imagine 20 families living in one building. Impossible? Think again; In remote Attawapiskat there is a severe housing shortage and most people are living in either crowded homes or shacks that many of us would be ashamed to use as a garden shed in our back yard.
Assembly of First Nations Chief Shawn Atleo said that "the situation in Attawapiskat isn't surprising" and revealed that "there are at least 100 communities facing similar circumstances across the country."
On November 15th and 16th 2011, members of Debajehmujig – Storytellers were invited to participate in the Assembly of First Nations National Forum on First Nation Citizenship at the River Cree Resort in Enoch, Alberta. Throughout the day, our artists listened to a number of panelists engaging in discussion around issues related to restoring First Nations’ own decision making and jurisdiction over citizenship in our Nations.
