Hand Drum Workshop

Friday June 25, 2021
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join OC Aboriginal for this free hand drum workshop to experience traditional experiential learning on June 23, 24 or 25 at the Kelowna campus. This opportunity is for any self-identified Indigenous student at OC. They have contracted two Knowledge Keepers to take us through three hours of training on how to lace a drum, make a drum stick and learn about the traditions, teachings and protocols that go with making and owning a traditional hand drum. The drum is yours to keep after the workshop.

Hands-on learning is a process which Indigenous Communities have exemplified in all aspects of their lives since time began. Traditional teachings, skills, and processes taught from one generation to the next in a traditional Indigenous knowledge transfer system. In higher education we call this process “experiential learning” or “Work Integrated learning,” no matter the label used, we all learn the same way.

Space is extremely limited so contact us today to reserve your seat!

Please contact Jewell Gillies (they/them) for more information and to register by emailing jgillies@okanagan.bc.ca or calling 250-864-5796.

**Would you like to join this workshop but have travelling costs? Visa gift cards will be provided to support any travel costs to attend. When you contact Jewell, please indicate if you are travelling to attend this workshop.**

Please see the event page on Okanagan.BC.ca to learn about the workshop facilitators, Gilly and Dianna!
