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!

Woodland Cultural Centre is excited to announce our partnership with Skateboard Project 2023!The Skateboard Project is an initiative that aims to promote Onkwehón:we artwork, active bodies, and collaboration between cultural centers across multiple Indigenous communities.In its second year, Kahnawà:ke, Kanehsatà:ke, Kenhtè:ke, Ahkwesáhsne and Six Nations came together to create seven skateboards graphics showcasing the range of styles and cultural imagery.Skateboard culture values inclusivity, individuality, creativity, and freedom and blending these with Indigenous traditions has created a project that connects communities through local art and skateboarding.Profits from the skateboard sales go towards compensation for the artist’s work and to help fund events related to June 21st (Go Skate Day/Indigenous Day/First Day of Summer).We hope to see more Indigenous communities being part of the project in the future!Woodland Cultural Centre is thrilled to participate in this fantastic community project. We will feature the seven skateboards from the participating artists in our online gift store and in the Stan Hill Gallery starting Saturday, February 18.
