Ogimaawabiitong would once again like to send a huge Miigwetch to our community partners: Wabaseemoong Child Welfare Agency, the Log Cabin Tavern, Copperfin Credit Union, Wholesale Club, Weyerhauser, Sunset Inn, Kenora Kinsmen, Kenora Safeway, Sysco, Dufresne’s, Lake of the Woods Speedway, Keewatin Place, Kenora Rotary Club, Kal Tire, Jarnel Contracting, the Kenora Devil’s Gap Islanders, and the PUFF Fire Hall for their sponsorship.
We also send Miigwetch’s to Shadow Junction and Summer Jade for their music, the Lake of the Woods Speedway for allowing guest parking on their property, our staff and volunteers for their hard work, and the Lawson Foundation for their continued support.
“A great big Miigwetch to everyone who helped put this event on, our sponsors, staff, volunteers, and the Lawson Foundation for everything,” adds Kenny. “It was a big success today and we would love to continue this through the years. It’ll just get bigger and better.”
We can’t wait to see you again next year at the KCA Youth and Family Wellness Camp!
A little cultural background on Sa’Be – One of the seven grandfather teachings is Honesty, represented by the Sa’Be. The Sa’Be is a spirit/protector who is a symbol of honesty. The Sa’Be represents honesty because it is believed that the Sa’Be used to walk among humans to remind us to remain true to our nature. The Sa’Be keeps us aware of being ourselves, and not someone we are not.
