Her Story

Ammielia Garbutt

Curve Lake First Nation Girl's Drumming Group

Ammielia's Story :

Hi, my name is Ammielia Garbutt but my friends and family call me Miley. I am 11 years old and I live in Lakefield, ON. I speak English, French and Annishnabee.

I joined the drumming group so that I could perform and let others enjoy seeing our group drum and sing. I have learned more about my own culture and experienced this with my family and friends that are also a part of this group.

My favourite memory of the group is when we made pottery. I used a pottery wheel for the first time and made my own smudge bowl.

My ninja skill is baking. I love to bake and can make a mean banana bread! My secret ingredient is chocolate chips .

I think the world would be a better place if people were kind. Kind to each other, kind to animals and kind to the environment. Kindness is a smile or a kind word, putting your trash in a garbage can instead of tossing it on the side of the road. Kindness is about being respectful, a small step in the right direction to make our world a better place!
