January is Tamil Canadian Heritage Month. It is an occasion to recognize and celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Tamil Canadians to Canada and an occasion to acknowledge and enjoy the narratives and wisdom of the Tamil culture.
Our Tamil Canadian Heritage Month Committee has created a resource website complete with lesson plans, information, upcoming events and more!
Please enjoy this traditional Pushpanjali dance performed by Shashmiya S. and Sharmiya S., two talented students from St. Maria Goretti Catholic School, in celebration of Tamil Canadian Heritage Month. The Pushpanjali dance, which is performed with flowers, allows the dancers to offer flowers in prayer to the lord, and to express their gratitude to the audience.
