Raven's Quest - Gr 1-3 Social Studies

Joshua

Joshua is a 12-year-old Ojibwe boy from Curve Lake, Ontario. He's passionate about baseball and it's his favourite thing to do. Sometimes when he plays with his friends the games last all day long! His best friend is Carter - they love to play Manhunt in the forest and video games together at home. Joshua is an accomplished drummer. He drums at pow-wows and has a group called the Redpath Singers. Together they all go to local schools to teach other kids about drumming and Ojibwe traditions. At the local Curve Lake pow-wow, Jacob gives us a tour and shows us the special osprey nest that the kids in his community built for the bird. Joshua's special word is "dewe'igan" which is "drum" in Ojibwe.
