Need a break from studying?
The Office of Indigenous Initiatives invites Laurier students to Tea and Stories with Jennie Absolon, local Indigenous elder, Wednesday, April 11 from 1-3 p.m. at the Waterloo campus Indigenous Student Centre.
“Jennie is a charismatic and outgoing elder with many experiences to share. Sitting with a nokomis (grandmother) while enjoying tea and stories is a great way to break from the stresses of studying for exams,” says Melissa Ireland, manager of Laurier’s Indigenous Student Centres.
Absolon, an Anishinaabe (Ojibway) from Northern Ontario’s Flying Post First Nation, will share her stories about life on the land and her experiences in Canada’s residential school system. She resides in Kitchener during the winter months and is a respected elder within Waterloo Region’s Indigenous community.
