Hello, my name is Jeremiah Nakashuk and I am from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

Last week we visited the Mamidosewin Centre here at Algonquin College where we played video games and board games with the people here. We played with a VR which was very fun. A few days after, we visited A7G at The Bronson Centre, where we did a sharing circle and just hung out and had pizza after. When we left the centre, we visited a park to go watch a movie, which was fun.

During the weekend we had free time to do what we wanted. The project leaders all went to different places, and everyone decided who they wanted to join. I decided to go to the Canadian History Museum in Quebec, then went back to Ottawa to visit Little Italy where we went to a little sandwich shop. After we ate, our group decided to visit Bayshore Mall.

Around ten days ago we went camping at Fitzroy Provincial Park for the weekend where we went swimming at the beach. Our project leaders rented a canoe and 2 kayaks to use and it was a lot of fun. We visited a cultural camp, tried beading, learned about herbal medicine, how to build a sweat lodge, and how to hoop dance. The next day we went to a nearby park to learn more about dragonflies and damselflies.
