3D Mural - Central Public School, Grand Erie District School Board
The Sewarahon'satat Project was rooted in the Virtual Grand Erie Communication Literacy Project. Created with Grade 6, 7 & 8 students.
Project themes reflect water teachings, creation stories cultural traditions and the local natural environment (present and historic). This 3-D mural includes a turtle representing Turtle island.
Video conferences were co-ordinated with all the involved schools to deliver the cultural and water teachings. Through a series of peer mentoring activities, students are empowered to teach and share their stories in a "Virtual Circle" with students from other school boards. Through this process, First Nations peoples identity was fostered and a strengthened cultural literacy between native and non-native youth developed.
The schools involved were from TDSB, KPRDSB, and GEDSB.
