Flying Eagle Program

Free Summer Drop-in Program

Flying Eagle visits various Green Shack playground program sites each week of the summer. This program uses the medicine wheel as a guiding principle and teaches children and families about the first peoples of this land and Treaty 6. Activities may include storytelling, bead crafts, dream catchers, double ball, lacrosse, bannock making, smudging and talking circles.

Incorporating Indigenous teachings into community recreation helps to build a relationship of understanding and respect among the program participants. It also encourages discussions about the history of the land and celebrates the relationship among all Edmontonians today. The program leader helps create a safe space for these conversations and teachings to be shared.
