Sacred Heart School hosted an Indigenous dancing and drumming event on Tuesday afternoon as the school marks National Indigenous History Month in June.

Miyopimatswin, which means Good Life, gave the elementary students a glimpse into Indigenous culture. The school called it their "reconciliACTION", one of the actions the school is taking for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

"I feel like our students are much more knowledgeable during these times than in the past in regards to their First Nations brothers and sisters that live here in Canada with us," said Michella Prokop, a Grade 1 teacher at the school and the committee head for the event. "And we really just want them to be exposed to the culture, to have an opportunity to see it, and then to move forward with them together."

"They were just mesmerized and inquisitive and they yelled out 'it was the best' at the end so I feel like they're really enjoying it so far."

Prokop added that Indigenous studies is becoming a larger part of the curriculum. 

"We've made a special effort to really enhance that in the last three or four weeks here, prior to the presentation," she said.

Michelle Bellegarde, the coordinator for the event, said every little bit helps in regards to Indigenous education.

"For us to come out here and share our culture, that's a huge blessing to us," Bellegarde said. "Even if we just reach one person, my late dad used to say that we're doing our job right? And it's starting off small, gaining that better understanding, that mutual respect of who we are as First Nations people and the history that comes along with that."

Sincere Toto was one of the group's dancers.

"We love to come out and show who we are and what we do through out the summer, and how we represent ourselves in a good way of life," Toto said.

National Indigenous Peoples Day is coming up on June 21.
