Robert Ryckman

Retired teacher of Special Education/Native Language at Shawanaga First Nation Kinomaugewgamik Elemenatary School,
Robert taught for almost 30 years, most of that on reserves. He taught for a year in Kashechewan where he learned Cree. After that, he spent 13 years in Wikwemikong on Manitioulin Island. Teachers in the schools where he taught, started teaching Robert Ojibway without being asked. Robert took courses through the Wikwemikong Heritage Organization and by then he had married an Ojibway woman from M’Chigeeng on the Island. Robert also taught on a smaller reserve on the west end of the Island, near Gore Bay. He lived in Toronto area after that, coming back to the area in 2004, to teach in Shawanaga, where he was Special Education/ Native Language teacher until his retirement in 2018. He continues to teach Ojibway on reserves in the area.

If interest warrants, there are many other possibilities to be added to the program. Such as, teaching the Creation Story, Talking Circles, Women’s Ceremonies, Pipe ceremonies and the drum, Water and Moon ceremonies, Crafts, talk about the Medicine Wheel, regalia, pow wow dancing, etc. If you are interested in any of these please contact us and will see what we can arrange.
