There is still time to register for the AGM and be entered into the early reg prize draw, and to order your BGWA member sign at a special price.

AGM Countdown: 2 weeks

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday, February 24th starting at 10AM (doors open 9:30). We will begin with an interesting and enlightening presentation by Glenn Trivett, an Ojibway knowledge keeper and medicine man and is a member of the Odawa Midewiwin medicine society.  Glenn has traveled extensively throughout Ontario in initiatives related to Indigenous youth empowerment and healthy relationships.  Glenn has learned about Indigenous history from elders, anthropologists and his spiritual leader in Wikwemikong.  His unique presentation style and perspective leaves those he touches with a much stronger understanding of the issues and hope for the future.  Glenn currently works at M’Wikwedong Native Cultural Resource Centre as their Cultural Coordinator.
