There is a connection between me and Caroline Calvé. It’s that me and her both like to snowboard.We like it a lot. Well I like it a lot because I like how we place ourselves on the snowboard. I don’t know why she likes it but I like it because its FUN !

  1. It’s very cool that Caroline Calve is an Algonquin becaus a few monthes ago in this school year we all did projects on Native Americans. :)

    • I agree with you, M.H. I didn’t know that Calve was partly Algonquin until I read J.R.’s article.
      We should try and find out where exactly her people came from. Wouldn’t it be amazing if they came from Odanak?
