Grandmothers’ Tea (2019)

June 26, 2019

There is no charge for this event. Participants bring a dish or desert to share.

Grandmothers’ Tea  brings Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal grandmothers together to build bridges between the two cultures.

Grandmothers’ Teas are times of quiet sharing, with each person in the circle getting a chance to talk or ask questions and, most importantly, to respectfully listen to one another’s stories of life. As people listen, they learn from one another.

Participants bring a dish or desert, with lunch at noon.  It is followed by a topic of conversation from  1 to 2 pm.

Organized by Nations Uniting, Five Oaks is thankful to be able to be a hosting site.    In this video you can learn of the history of the Teas, and the experiences of participants.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dl1QOLMTGS8
