The drum is a powerful instrument. Indigenous people throughout Turtle Island refer to it as the heartbeat of Mother Earth. It is used in many spiritual and sacred ceremonial practices. Some say the beat of the drum has the power to change natural elements, including the weather. It is believed to have the power to heal sickness, and some believe it has the power to send messages both to the animal world and to the spirit world.
Stop by RRC’s Notre Dame Campus for an incredible evening that includes a concert by William Prince, a singer/songwriter from Peguis First Nation, and an opening ceremony featuring traditional drumming and prayers by an RRC elder.
Enjoy complimentary refreshments and delicious appetizers – all while reminiscing with other RRC alumni from the School of Indigenous Education. This is a free event for RRC alumni – you may also bring three additional guests (one adult, and two children) – but registration is required as a supervised activity area will be provided for children under 10 years of age.
If you haven’t seen this campus before, or it has been a while since you’ve been back, now is your chance to explore and experience it. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
