Join the Woodland Cultural Centre for a screening of our new film Silent No More: A Virtual Tour of the Former Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School in a city near you! Come celebrate National Indigenous History Month with WCC.

The former Mohawk Institute Residential School (Mush Hole) was the longest operating residential school in Canada. A building created to destroy Indigenous identity and heritage is now the home of the Woodland Cultural Centre, a site dedicated to the revitalization of Hodinohsho:ni cultures and languages.

“Residential School is the only school you’re considered a survivor and not a graduate.” Beau Miller, 2022 (Mohawk Institute Survivor)

Nya:węh to our film production team, Achimowin Films, and to the generous funders of the Educational Enhancement Project, Inspirit, Brant Community Foundations, McLean Foundation, The Slaight Family Foundation, CIBC Foundation, and TD Bank Foundation.

This Film is rated PG-13, parents strongly cautioned. Some material may not be suited for children under age 13 (verbal descriptions of violence and sexual assault towards children).
