On December 1st the world lost a great teacher with the passing of Nick Hockings. I first met Nick as the loving grandfather of Conserve School alum Celeste Hockings. Nick was a member of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe and founder of Waswagoning (a re-created Ojibwe Village). Over the past few years Nick along with his wife Charlotte have given generously of their time making presentations at Conserve and welcoming students and staff at Waswagoning. It is my privilege to share some of my favorite photos taken by Conserve School students and staff from Nick’s presentations at Conserve and from visits to Waswagoning.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick’s family and friends.
Head of School
