Nearly a week after we left Gatineau and Toronto, we arrived in Attawapiskat. After a warm welcome to the community the night of our arrival, and the unloading and distribution of the supplies we carried with us, we set out on day six to meet with the community and discuss the yurt: where it should be built, and how the community will use it.
After a meeting with the Chief and Councillor, we set off to visit the high school.
Katie Weber and Andy Thompson visit the high school art class to discuss building and design.
There is a great deal of enthusiasm and curiosity about the Mongolian yurt we brought. We're all anxious to see it set up.
