Sioux Valley Dakota Nation Waste Warriors - Workshop Three The third Waste Warriors workshop was hosted by Sioux Valley Dakota Nation from August 19-23rd. Participants had more in-depth learning about project planning and management skills. They also learned about vlogging and other media to advertise projects, and tips for public speaking and being on camera. They learned how to do composting and spent an afternoon with Sioux Valley’s community garden coordinator, Jennifer McIvor. They did a community clean up, had a tour of the community and the natural springs just outside of Sioux Valley and gave tobacco offerings to the white bison in the community. ReGen Composites from Winnipeg came and did a presentation on their innovative waste solutions and business and we had local elder Harold Blacksmith come and speak on the first day. On our last night together, youth played archery and learned how to set up tipis which they spent the night in!
