Stories for Hope, Healing & Belonging

June 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

All are welcome to join for these stories and conversation.

Stories we will share:

Shi-shi-etko – Nicola I. Campbell (Pictures by Kim LaFave)

In just four days young Shi-shi-etko will have to leave her family and all that she knows to attend residential school.She spends her last days at home treasuring the beauty of her world — the dancing sunlight, the tall grass, each shiny rock, the tadpoles in the creek, her grandfather’s paddle song. Her mother, father and grandmother, each in turn, share valuable teachings that they want her to remember. And so Shi-shi-etko carefully gathers her memories for safekeeping.

My Heart Fills With Happiness – Monique Gray Smith:

The sun on your face. The smell of warm bannock baking in the oven. Holding the hand of someone you love. What fills your heart with happiness? This beautiful board book, with illustrations from celebrated artist Julie Flett, serves as a reminder for little ones and adults alike to reflect on and cherish the moments in life that bring us joy.

Your hosts are members of the Community and Race Relations Committee of Peterborough, the New Canadians Centre, Community Living CKL and Compass Early Learning & Care.

Every other Tuesday at noon we invite you to sit down with your child for lunch and a story! You can join in the conversation via Zoom:
