tatawâw: There’s room for everyone

It’s particularly sweet for me to see these CBC reports about the outreach for reconciliation coming from Muskeg Lake (in partnership with the Mennonite Central Committee), because I’ve always been so generously welcomed there myself. I’ve attended services in that church with its gorgeous Stations of the Cross painted by Kevin Pee Ace. And I once got to take the late Dr Freda Ahenakew to the powwow in that beautiful arbour where we can hear that fine Mennnonite choir singing in the video. That day was as close as I will ever get to taking the Queen to tea!

Bravo, Muskeg Lake! Bravo Treaty Commissioner (and former Muskeg Lake Chief) Harry Lafond: kimamihcihinân!
