Treaty 2 Territory – Tuesday, March 31, 2020, The FNT2T hosted a live stream of entertainment for it’s members on the Anishinaabe Agowidiiwininan Facebook Page while practicing social distancing, smudging, sanitizing and drinking cedar tea. Many of our Nations are in lockdown. The live stream was a chance for viewers to watch live entertainers from the comfort of their own environments. Social distancing was exercised in the FNT2T Government Building along with all necessary precautions in avoiding COVID-19.
The FNT2T would like to say ‘Giche Miigwetch’ to Traditional Hand Drum Singer Darren Thompson of Ebb and Flow First Nation, Fiddle Player Meghan Mowatt of Fisher River Cree Nation, and Juno nominee & Award winning singer/songwriter/storyteller Tracy Bone of Keeseekoowenin First Nation for volunteering their time to perform live on the Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan Facebook Page. Tracy Bone, who is a mentor and role model for Indigenous youth, was presented with a Keeseekoowenin Ojibway Nation Flag, and Official Treaty 2 Territory Flag by Lead Keeper Boh Kubrakovich in honour of her dedication to sharing her music with the Indigenous Community. Miigwetch to Meghan for playing the stepping tunes which allowed viewers to showcase their jigging steps at home, and to Darren for the Honour Song and Anishinaabe Spirit Bear Song to our members.
