The Woodland Cultural Centre serves to preserve, promote and strengthen Indigenous language, culture, art and history; bringing the story of the Hodinohsho:ni people of the Eastern Woodlands to life through innovative exhibitions and programs.
The Woodland Cultural Centre is the premier destination to explore, learn, and share the rich histories and contemporary cultures of Indigenous people of the Great Lakes region. Your support is needed to help us share our stories!
Due to the overwhelming demand for our Truth and Reconciliation programming in September, we are continuing to offer specific sessions into October! We will be continuing the Thanksgiving Address session, as it is an integral part of Haudenosaunee culture. In Mohawk, it's translated to "The Words Before All Else" and no gathering would ever happen before first bringing all minds together to give thanks in this prayer. In this workshop, children will be guided through the Thanksgiving Address and led through adiscussion on the importance of gratitude.As well, we will be hosting sessions on the Importance of Apples and Orange Shirt Day. Students will learn all about apples and the origins of Orange Shirt Day. During this interactive presentation, students will learn about where apples come from and their different parts, while also learning why they were important to the children that attended the Mohawk Institute Residential School. All sessions take place over Zoom, and will be $10.00/participant. There will be a pre and post-package provided, along with a follow-up email to confirm number of participants.
