The province is investing $60,000 through the Ontario Arts Council to support local organizations and their projects.

Nbisiing Secondary School and the North Bay Film festival are among the five being supported.

Over $10,000 is going to the film festival, and over $13,000 is making its way to Nbissing.

Cultural Lead and Language teacher at the school, Melanie Beaucage, says the prospect of students creating their own regalia and showcasing it at the upcoming annual school powwow in May is exciting as it not only provides students with a platform to express their creativity, but also celebrate and share their cultural heritage.
