ROOTS on Fire!

ROOTS Full

Last night was the final Fall ROOTS session and Open House. What a great event! 14 young drummers demonstrated their new techniques in hand and stick drumming, dancing and singing, some even taking on the lead calls! They also had a blast playing the stone passing game Oboa Asi Me Nsa and had us all laughing with them.

It was a large group this time and we were lucky to have Carleton Practicum student Meaghan Cullen helping with the teaching each week. The class also did an art session with Maureen Clarke, making amazing votive candles with Adinkra symbols.
