All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:

Teachers who are current CBEEN members may access one complimentary program (with up to $250 in bussing cost reimbursement) for their classroom in the school year. Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2020-2021 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For the 2020-2021 school year we have a COVID-19 policy in place.  Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year.  Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at wilvoices@cbeen.org

READ OUR COVID-19 PLAN HERE

The Wild Voices team is carefully planning for a safe return to working with students and teachers.  Our booking system is open for teachers to begin planning and scheduling with educators.

At this time we ask teachers to request booking dates from October 5, 2020 onwards to allow time for us to prepare based on needs as they emerge in September.  We also ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking.  It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.

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
