Acknowledging Lands and Waters we call home

Acknowledging the lands and waters of the Indigenous nations before us we are humbled to imagine the gentle wake of the canoes and the  blade of the paddles gently and gracefully marking the waters.

Using the lands in a good way, leaving only a soft foot print on the land

and caring for the gifts she provides.

Wind and trees working in unison, still singing the songs today as in the hundreds of years past.

We acknowledge these Sacred Gifts of Mother Earth in our local territories of the Indigenous peoples.

Humphrey Nature Trails:
Creative Community Happens Here

Whispering River Music’s Creative Communities project is based on an old storyteller’s saying:

“When you tell one story, you should always tell two. That way the stories will lean on each other”.

The first of these, the “Humphrey Nature Trails: Creative Community Happens Here” project, invites families and community members to tell their own stories in response to twelve Covid-19 art installations along Rabbit Run Trail built by the students of Humphrey Public School.

Each station has a question about personal response to the pandemic generated by the  grade 6 class. 


Twelve Questions:

1 - Where have you found joy this year? What can you still do that makes you happy?

2 - Did you enjoy parts of the lockdown?

3 - Where have you found boredom?

4 - Have you been more creative? What have you created?

5 - How have you connected with family and friends? Where have you found comfort?

6 - Have you found yourself lazier?

7 - Where have you experienced frustration?

8 - How has Covid-19 affected your life? Have you learned anything from the experience?

9 - Where have you experienced sadness?

10 - What have you lost? What have you found?

11 - Have you been angry?

12 - What are you grateful for?

Get involved!
