Joining an Algonquin Women’s Drumming Circle??
A Mi’kmaq woman who lives near Bancroft knows many traditional Anishinaabe songs and she is willing to come to a drumming circle to teach them to us.
Please let me know which day(s) of the week that you would be able to attend. We will try to set it up for the one day that the majority of people can attend. We know that we will not be able to fit it into everyone’s schedule but hope that we can get started and others can join when available. This would possibly be a monthly or bi-weekly event.
