Smudge room to move when Rideau High School closes, trustee says

 

February 20, 2017



Public school board officials say they're hoping to relocate the Aboriginal Learning Space — a special room where Indigenous students practice the spiritual cleansing ceremony called smudging — if plans to shut down Rideau High School go ahead.

Smudging usually involves burning a small amount of sage, cedar bough or sweetgrass and cleansing oneself with the smoke.
