I’m not at school tomorrow. Would Wednesday, Thurs or Friday work?
I am also thinking about what to do to “celebrate” or honour or do something for Day 200… and would really appreciate your input.
I’m also wondering about on Day 200 if we could Treaty Walk Fort Qu’Appelle because the way I scheduled it, Day 200 is actually the Friday of the last week of school (and school is over on the Thursday)… so I’d have the Friday free. If so, would you be interested in helping me organize a weiner roast or something that day. We get so crazy on the last day I’m afraid to put any extra stress on any of “my” people…
As far as blurbing about Treaty Walks. Here goes:
While writing morning pages in my journal last spring, I wrote these statements: I want to get in better shape. I should walk to school next fall. As I walk, I should meditate on the Treaties. Walking to school “every day the busses run”, meditating on the treaties, blogging and posting pictures along the way, has become my Treaty Walks http://www.treatywalks.blogspot.com/
So, what is a Treaty Walk? A Treaty Walk is putting one foot on the ground and then the other with treaty on the mind. It’s meditating on a small nuance or a grand concept of treaty. It’s sharing treaty knowledge as part of an individual’s personal journey. It’s bringing the five senses to the treaty table. It’s one small step in and toward treaty. It’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical treaty education. It’s putting treaty thoughts to action and treaty actions to thought. It’s treaty praxis. It’s taking treaty to work in the morning, and taking treaty home in the evening. It’s getting up close and personal with treaty. It’s reclaiming, building, strengthening treaty relationships.
Am I on the right track, here, Sue?
