So I have just arrived home from an evening at the Orange Tree Villa where we presented our class project called “Treaty Walk in the Village.”
I was quite happy with how the event turned out. In all honesty, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was quite surprised. We had way more people there than I would have expected. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to bring anyone as my family have all deserted me to go to Mexico. I thought that we were able to have some really good discussions with people.
Andrew and I took a look at the role that Treaties play in the twenty-first century. We were able to take a pretty in-depth look at the implications of Treaties in our present day from both a legal and a traditional outlook. I really enjoyed when we were able to have some in-depth conversations with some of our guests. It is really great to see so many people have a solid understanding of Treaties. This allowed us to really have a conversation with them and it became less of a presentation. Mike Cappello had a good visit with us and I was actually able to learn a few thigs from him. He is someone who I learned a great deal from about Treaties, so it was nice to continue the learning.
I think this is a very cool idea and one that I think ECCU classes should continue to do in the future. It reminded me of a heritage or science fair that I remember doing in elementary school. It is an awesome way to share the knowledge that we have gained in our classes. For me, as someone who is almost done their degree, it felt like a showcase of what I have learned and how much I have learned. I am looking forward to taking this knowledge into a classroom of my own one day. Hopefully soon.
