I got an Ontario Arts Council. and got to choose the schools I wanted so chose “Wandering “Spirit” school. .When I walked in Vern Harper said he had been expecting me as he was told I was coming. I took part in the sweet grass ceremony they had every morning for the children. Children painted a mural from storytelling of “Magical Earth” I also lead a workshop on ocean painting and Tedrian Chizyik from New York did movement. Dale Bertrand shared his flowers in Giant Flower Island. Dale Bertrand led a workshop on painting a Medicine Wheel. We later did workshops there thru the Inner city Angles. In 1979 we attended the Symposium for Humanity ( where one major event was Stevanne Auerbach leading the Butterfly Parade) and we marched to ‘love and protect the earth’. Dale Bertrand and I attended and had a booth at the Rainbow Rose Festival.
