Sumac Creek Tipi Company built the structures for the school

Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School is very proud to announce the addition of two new structures to our Fatima landscape. Our Native Second Language (NSL) program continues to grow and develop with the support of the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board (HSCDSB). This year, through the hard work and support of Mona Jones ​our Indigenous Education Coordinator for HSCDSB, and Chylene Day our NSL teacher we have been able to add two 16-foot tipis to our educational programming. Mona and Chylene continue to expand the opportunities for our students at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School with these projects and investing in our NSL programming.

We were able to work with Jeff Jacobs and the Sumac Creek Tipi Company which is based in Serpent River which made these original tipis specifically for Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. Jeff and his team came and gave a full tutorial on how to set up the tipi, the history of the tipi, and the teachings behind the tipi to our students. Jeff and his company are very proud to support the school in this venture and promote our NSL program.
