Meet Workshop Facilitator Hannah Turcotte
My name is Hannah Turcotte and I’m from Powassan, Ontario. I’m a member of the North Bay and Mattawa Algonquin First Nation and my family originates from Pikwàkanagàn First Nation. I’m currently completing a degree in Indigenous Studies at Nipissing University and working as an Indigenous Student Mentor at my school’s Office of Indigenous Initiatives. This is where I first learned how to bead in 2017 by attending a workshop led by an Elder. Beadwork was a gateway for me to reconnect with my culture and community. Since then, I’ve started my own business so that I can continue practicing and learning about my culture while sharing it with others.
Elements of Risk
The risk of injury may exist in experiential learning activities. Due to the very nature of some activities, the risk of injury may increase. Injuries may range from minor sprains to concerns that are more serious. The safety and well-being of students is the prime concern and the participating boards shall make their best effort to manage this as effectively as possible. The management of injury risks is the responsibility of the caring adult supervising the student in the at-home environment.
Age of Majority
If a student has attained the age of majority, the signature of the parent or guardian is left to the discretion of the activity leaders. Parents are invited to telephone the school if they require additional information.
