LOGO CONTEST Vote for the Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre offers a $300 Prize
These are the final four submissions from community members for the new logo for the Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre. (pronounced Dwad-wen-ah-ga-dot) which roughly translates to “Let’s Interpret” or more specifically “let us all interpret/orally translate between two languages”.
Our team feels this new name is very fitting for the world we live in today as Onkwehonwe, in our attempts to preserve and maintain languages and ceremonies for each of our languages in today’s modern times. We believe that each of our Onkwehonweneha (Our ways/our language) is just as important as the next.
A $250 grand prize will be given to the winner!

Have you visited the museum to see our current exhibition? Make sure to visit before Doug Maracle: Come Walk With Me is gone!Doug Maracle is Mohawk Nation, Bear Clan from Six Nations of the Grand River and is known around the world for his craftsmanship and artist works. It wasn’t until more recently that his hometown discovered his talents.This exhibition celebrates the diversity of Doug’s body of work. The work includes wood carvings, prints, and pen & ink sketches meshed with a sense of humour, history, and place.The viewer will learn about what inspired Doug’s artistic practice to encourage visitors to understand the process of sculpting techniques and encourage a younger generation to become interested in the connection between art and narrative of the Haudenosaunee culture within the context of the history of art in Canada. The exhibition provides a point of departure to open the context of craft vs fine art, identity, and process.This exhibition will be closing before we’re back from our Christmas break and unfortunately cannot be extended. Be sure to visit the museum before December 22 to see Doug’s incredible work.
