The Woodland Cultural Centre presents a screening of the Mohawk Institute Residential School as a fundraiser for the Save the Evidence fundraising campaign. Join us every third Wednesday of the month at 7pm and help us raise funds for this important project.
The virtual tour video was created with local production company Thru the Reddoor, and it follows the guide, Lorrie Gallant, as she gives a tour of the former Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School. During the video, Lorrie provides the history of the institution over its 140 year history. Viewers will get to see the different rooms in the school, from the girls’ and boys’ dormitories, the cafeteria, laundry room, and other rooms throughout the building, as well as hear interviews from five Survivors of the Mohawk Institute.
Next week, join Woodland Cultural Centre for December’s Teioia’ks iakwatero:rok - (We Watch Movies) Film Series screening of Arctic Defenders by John Walker at 7 PM. Learn about the remarkable story that began in 1968 with a radical Inuit movement that changed the political landscape forever.John Walker is one of the most prestigious Canadian directors working in the documentary genre. His films are personal, and lyrical and express a deep understanding of the human condition. They have been widely broadcast and have appeared at major international film festivals in Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, London and Tokyo.Register to receive the zoom link directly in your inbox!More information: woodlandculturalcentre.ca/upcoming-events/#OnHeritage #OntarioHistory #Indigenous #IndigenousVoices #IndigenousArt #IndigenousEvents #FirstNations #FN #IndigenousKnowledge #IndigenousCulture #BrantOnt #Brantford#BrantEvents #Giving ...
