Grade 4 students at Notre Dame Catholic Elementary School spent Thursday learning about Canada’s First Nations people.

Guest speaker Sharon Churchill helps Notre Dame student Rain Arcand try on a vest from the Fort Chipewyan First Nations people. The vest, together with other items that would be seen at a trading post were on display for the students to experience. In addition to a number of activities, students had an opportunity to try first Nations food at lunch, including buffalo and moose stew, bannock and buffalo heart.
