WHEREAS the ''Teacher Recruitment and Retention Proposal" of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada provides financial support to hold the Great Moon Gathering so that we may provide the most up-to-date workshops and educational information and have the opportunity to share our language, culture and traditions with our educators, so that they in-turn teach our children;
