This September the Woodland Cultural Centre is introducing Lunch and Learns with our Executive and Associate Directors! Heather George will be hosting virtual tours of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School and Christopher Ashkewe will be leading Truth and Reconciliation presentations. Spend your September with the Woodland Cultural Centre as we educate on our journey of truth so we can work towards reconciliation.


Virtual Tour of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School

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 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.


Truth and Reconciliation Presentation

Our Truth and Reconciliation presentation covers topics from the Imperial context, Canada’s Indigenous Policy, the Indian Residential Settlement agreement, to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

Your donations will help support our education department to create and deliver virtual programming at the Woodland Cultural Centre. We want to continue to deliver the highest quality programs centered on a Hodinohsho:ni worldview, celebrating, and sharing Indigenous cultures, languages, and art.
