SUBJECT: A music video to honor elders and ancestors is being made on Wednesday April 12, 2017

Dear parents and guardians of EEMS, TEC, EIS and ABMHS students:

On April 12th (this Wednesday) a team of teachers and students from ABMHS will be shooting a follow up video to the song and video we created last year - Gentle Warrior. This year, the theme of our song and video is youth honoring their elders and ancestors. The team behind this project would like to pass along the following information to you, your families and your neighbors.

• The video shoot will take place behind the Eskasoni Middle School between 1:20 and 2:20, on Wednesday, April 12th. That’s this Wednesday. Our rain day is Thursday April 13, same time and place.

• All residents of Eskasoni are invited to attend and are asked, if possible, to wear clothing that reflects their Mi’kmaq pride. For example, school t-shirts, regalia, ribbon shirts, etc. Also, please feel free to bring a drum or other culturally significant belongings such as Mi’kmaq flags, etc.

• Anyone who would like to appear in close-up in the video is encouraged to bring a photograph of an ancestor or relative who has passed on. We are hoping to include clips of people, young and old, holding their photos in honor of their deceased relatives throughout the video.

• If you are a drummer or would like to take part in a large round dance come prepared to drum or dance
