Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program people who have never played Makazinitaagewin will have an opportunity to learn to make their own games. This will help in revitalizing the original game of this region and passing on traditional art knowledge. The Evaluation will survey participants about their experience of making this traditional art form. In addition the two facilitators will be surveyed as well to assist them in improving their teaching of this traditional art form.
