    Hi there,

    Sphenia Jones, a Haida elder, is leading a class action lawsuit against the Catholic Church and is set to appear in a Calgary court on April 22, 2024. She is looking for singers and drummers to rally outside of the court in support. I would be immensely grateful if you share this information with anyone you may know who would be willing to show up.

    I see that you are now on the Ao’taki for CBE. This is awesome. I sent you an email from school today and wondered if you would be interested in doing a workshop with our students on May 25/24. I enjoyed the medicine bag teachings and making and thought this would be a lovely share with my students. I would love to continue to discuss this with you. I look forward to hearing from you. Warmly, Lori

    Hi Chantal, I attended your drum making workshop in October and LOVE my drum. I am wondering if you can provide me with some information about programs for schools. I teach grade 3 and would love to have you come offer something for our grade 1-3 students before the end of the school year. I would need to provide information to my principal about options, pricing, etc. We have 60 grade 1 kids, 50 grade 2 kids and 60 grade 3 kids. I teach at École du Nouveau Monde in Scenic Acres. Thanks! Liette

    Hi Chantal

    Thoroughly enjoyed the drumming circle today at the AER in Centennial Place. You have a great voice and led the singing and drumming expertly. Also enjoyed the stories behind the drums and the songs especially using your voice to communicate with others when berry picking or in Wal-Mart! Great description of the 4 animals too and how they relate to the landscape (Elk, Buffalo, Moose and Deer).

    Additionally we are looking for an elder to provide a blessing for our event. Any assistance with this would be appreciated.

    Hello Chantal

    Myname is anne Gray and I am the music teacher at W.O. Mitchell Elementary school in Calgary. We may be interested in a 2023 or 2024 residency on rap music; I was told you do this. Please confirm this could be a possibility. Another possibility is a residency on one of your indigenous topics, or several combined. We are a Spanish bi-lingual school and I understand you can do your residencies in Spanish. Please confirm.

    Many thanks,

    Anne Gray

    Hello Chantel – Seniors on the Bow in Cochrane have built a Labyrinth/Gazebo as our gesture to give back to the community we live in. On June 3, 11:30, we are having a celebration to acknowledge workers and volunteers that have worked last summer to make this happen. We are having the Mayor acknowledge Treaty 7 and we would like an Indigenous representative say a blessing of our efforts. Tony Snow has declined due to another engagement and to my knowledge Gloria Snow has not responded. Would you have an interest in saying the blessing for us? Please let me know if you are able or interested.
