Sage Harvesting: 

Today the grade 2s had the amazing opportunity to visit Nose Hill park to pick Sage. In class we talked about reasons why we smudge and all the amazing gifts it brings us. We discussed different body parts we smudge and why. 

Some of our ideas are were:

We smudge our:

- heads to think good thoughts

- eyes to see good things

- ears to hear good things and listen to all the teachings

At Nose Hill, Dr. Lana Potts led a group smudge and prayer, then taught us the difference between male and female sage and last showed us what to pick. Male sage has broader leafs and doesn't grow seeds. Female sage grows lower to the ground to watch over all the other medicines and grows seeds. We don't pick it when it has seeds because we want them to spread to Na'a.

After our teachings, prayer, and group smudge we were each given some tobacco to offer to Na'a before we picked. 

Thank you for all your teachings!

We had a beautiful morning <3



Welcome: 


Oki, Tansi, Hello,

My name is Bethany, I am one of the Grade 2 teachers at Niitsitapi Learning Centre. This is my third year at the NLC. I am originally from the East Coast, beautiful Prince Edward Island. I traded the beaches for mountains when I moved to Alberta with my family six years ago. I have a fourteen-year-old son, Keaton. We love staying active, being outdoors and exploring Calgary in all its beauty.

I am so excited to see all returning and new students back to school. We are off to a great start in our Grade 2 class and students are quickly settling into school routines. 

I feel so honoured to be a part of the Niitsitapi Learning Centre team this year. Above all, I am excited to continue  learning and growing with all the students, families, Elders and community. Welcome back, everyone!

Ms. Bethany
