More about facilitator Eddy Robinson of Morningstar River:
Eddy Robinson is Anishinabe (Ojibway/Cree) and a member of the Crane clan — a leadership clan for the Anishinabek. Born and raised in Toronto, he is a First Nation citizen of the Missanabie Cree First Nation. It was in the city that he found his cultural identity and got in touch with his spirituality through spending time with Traditional Healers and Elders visiting Toronto. Singing Traditional Pow Wow music on the Dewegun (Drum) has been Mr. Robinson’s passion since he was 15 years old. The power of the Dewegun (Drum) has helped him turn his life around when things were heading for the worse; it opened the door to other aspects of his culture. Over the past 20 years, Eddy has worked in Aboriginal communities throughout Ontario, striving to improve the quality of life for his people.
This is a recurring event (monthly with different themes)
