About the Program
Through the story of lktomi Luta Wi (Red Spider Woman), students learn to all co-create responsible, kind relationships not only with each other, but also with Nature. Students explore the Traditional Indigenous Worldview as it pertains to Mother Earth and the interconnectedness of all life through story, ceremony, games and creative art over the course of this full day program. Nature is sacred, and we all have a responsibility to learn sustainable ways of relating to Her.

"Kathryn is engaging and knowledgeable. I appreciated the information sheet she shared about how to host an elder which helped to prepare the children for their responsibilities. Her shared stories were fun and the children understood the messages shared through the telling. We had fun baking (and eating) bannock over a fire!" - Cheryl Makeiv
"Very engaging and educational. Students enjoyed very much. " - Julie Johnson-Murray
"This group was challenging. Kat taught them about how where she comes from kids always show respect to the Elders, because the Elders are there to teach them and the kids want to learn. No respect, no learning. I truly appreciated her ways of teaching. " - Claudia Rousseau
