The Woodland Cultural Centre wants to say nya:węh/niá:wen to our giving community for your generosity on #GivingTuesdayCA. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your continued support of the Centre and the work we do! Executive Director Heather George writes “Our supporters and donors have once again displayed their generosity and that they, like all of us at Woodland, are passionate about cultural reclamation, preservation, and celebration. Your support of our language department is an act of true kindness and love. Our languages are so much more than words on paper – language frames deep philosophical and relational understandings that help all of us engage in kinder, more compassionate ways and is an important part of our healing from the trauma of residential school. Like many not-for-profit organizations that participate in #GivingTuesday, charitable donations form an important part of our financial wellbeing and they are also an important indication that you believe in us and the work we do. Wa’tkwanonhwerá:ton’ (I to you all, sending forth embracing, celebratory, good energy)”Thanks to your generous contributions we were able to raise $25,352 in support of the preservation of Hodinohsho:ni languages and the important revitalization work being done at Woodland. Nya:węh/Niá:wen to the Dufresne-Ray Family Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation, which for the fourth consecutive year in a row has matched the first $5,000 of your donations. We are so grateful to have your continued support and generous contribution.
