Elsipogtog School had a special guest today at our Dream Catcher Awards. Madison Milliea came and performed for our school, here is her story; Hi, my name is Madison Milliea. I am 7 years old in grade 3 at the Soleil Levant School in Richibucto. I can speak French, English and Micmac. I started dancing when I was 3 years old. My mitata would bring me to pow wows. I dance fancy shawl. We look like butterflies when we dance. My dress and shawl are called a regalia, it is not called a costume. When I dance, I dance for the spirits and for the people that are sick.
