This morning I was super bummed out because I woke up sick. I really wanted to go for the walk with Auntie Donna and to the naming ceremony, but I was forced to focus on taking care of myself today and now I’m feeling a little better.

This camp has been inspirational for me. Everyday we hear something new from both students and mentors that makes me think about life and living on turtle island in a new way. Every person has opened my eyes to a knew way of thinking and interacting and for that I am eternally grateful.

From the first day everyone was talking and getting along. Like one student said and others echoed, we are a family now. In three short days we have been able to share with and care for each other.

Thank you to Snuneymuxw for hosting us on their traditional unseeded territory. It has been a learning experience for everyone.
