Stories from the road: Munsee-Delaware


It’s Melanie G. from the AAE powwow trail. This weekend the trail landed Gillian and I in Munsee-Deleware Nation just outside of London, ON. We had a wonderful time making new friends and seeing others.  The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and we had all kinds of people drop by our booth!

One of our new friends was working on his own design with the Fractiles board and made up a silly sunshine face. We just HAD to take a picture!



As always, we made a few hard hats for the future engineers that dropped by. You can see me putting one together below. Look at that smile! I love seeing you guys get so excited about science, technology, engineering and math!



 Remember Gillian’s friend River from the Walpole powwow? They were both at Munsee-Deleware too! He stopped by our booth to work with Gillian on the building challenge. River and his mom had a booth just down from ours that was all about Autism Awareness. As always it was great to see them again.  They also had beads for sale at their booth, naturally I had to buy some! I’m looking forward to making a pretty bracelet with them. 



The family engineering building challenge is always a favourite at the powwows! It seemed like siblings or other family members could communicate best in that activity. Check out these two sisters trying it out! Hey – you can even see River in his regalia in the background!
