Community Culture Circle : Rattle Making 🎶
Join us in making raw hide rattles in contribution to the supply of instruments for Community Culture Circle! Please note that the rattles are being made for program, not to keep individually. When finished, all rattles will stay at First Light as part of our programming materials. This craft is for adults only.
Important note: Child minding will not be provided during Community Culture Circle. Children are parents responsibility. Due to the nature of this program, please be aware that some topics discussed within the talking circle may not be appropriate for children. This is a healing circle and content may be heavy.
Transportation is provided within St. John’s city limits. If you require transportation, please let us know ahead of time to ensure your ride is booked. Any transportation requests given on the day of program will not be processed.
There is a water cooler on site, so please feel free to bring your water bottle 🙂

About Community Culture Circle:
Community Cultural Circle welcomes individuals of all walks of life. Its purpose is to introduce participants to the rudimentary concepts of Indigenous traditions through teachings, sharing knowledge, and participation in ceremony. Participants engage in an introduction talking circle, a smudging ceremony, and First Nations drumming as well as receive teachings for each of these practices. Community Culture Circle allows a safe, nonjudgmental space for community members to come together, share their stories, and enjoy each other’s company as they connect with the roots of Indigenous culture. It allows spiritual connection to ourselves and/or the Creator, reflecting upon a holistic approach to self-care and self-exploration through an Indigenous lens.
