What a weekend! Packed with networking, information and action pods - the Northwestern Regional Animal Summit was a huge success. The goal of the summit was to strengthen partnerships, collect/leverage intelligence and increase the collaborative work of the Animal North Network.
We loved having the opportunity to meet face-to-face with so many people/groups we already work with - and to forge new relationships and connections with other animal lovers!
Our favourite part? The drum. The Biwaase’aa Drum group kicked things off with a blessing and traditional dance (pictured here). Biwaase’aa speaks to that early part of the day when the sun is coming up and there is a feeling of hope in people’s hearts - which was a wonderful way to start things off.
A big thank you to the OSPCA for organizing such an event (we hope it becomes an annual affair). We can't wait to see what comes from it.
