Philip's Academy faculty members visit Kamestastin
Posted 15 January 2006, 7:10 pm NST
In September 2003 Tshikapisk hosted a visit to Kamestastin by two staff members from Philip's Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. Emily Trespas who is an art teacher at Andover, and Malinda Blustain who oversees the Robert Peabody Museum of Archaeology on the school campus were accompanied by Stephen Loring of the Arctic Studies Center at the Smithsonian Institution, and by Tim Borlase, Director of the Labrador Institute in Goose Bay. Rounding out the small group were Anthony Jenkinson and his grand-daughter Jordanna Benuen both of Sheshatshit.

the purpose of the Philip's Academy visit to Kamestastin was to explore the possibility of student programming using Tshikapisk's facilities as a base and for a cross cultural program on the same lines as that which Philip's Academy already runs with the Hopi.
