In June, Powers Workers’ Union generously donated $40,000 to the Woodland Cultural Centre to support the Centre’s programming, museum, and building maintenance. We are honoured to have had the opportunity to work with PWU and their Indigenous Relations Committee on their fundraiser and host them on site for a powerful and emotional day. Nya:węh go:wah for your passion and dedication to supporting WCC! PWU planned a Reconciliation Honour Walk with their staff to get involved. The objective of this walk was to honour the victims and survivors of the Residential School System while raising money for awareness and education in the name of reconciliation. Due to Covid-19, participants walked individually and logged their distance on the Reconciliation Honour Walk website. The goal was to walk a cumulative total of 600 kilometres in honour of the number of kilometres Chanie Wenjack endeavoured to complete when he escaped from the Cecilia Jeffrey Residential School.
