Meegwetch, thank you, merci for the substantial interest shown in this magnificent Algonquin craft.
There were two dates for the workshop that the participants chose from - March 24th and May 4th.
Approximately 10 participants attended the workshops led by Algonquin craftsman Chuck Commanda, his assistant Nicole Lefebvre, and organized by Plenty Canada's Project Manager and Algonquin youth, Shaelyn Wabegijig.
Meegwetch, thank you, merci to each of our participants for sharing your unique presence and gifts with the group, making each workshop as memorable as they were. A special chi meegwetch (big thank you, merci beaucoup) to Chuck Commanda for his knowledge and craftsmanship that he shared with the participants here at Plenty Canada.
