On Sunday, September 29th we welcome Residential School Survivors, their families, our surrounding communities, friends, neighbours; and the public at-large for a day of workshops and presentations.
The event will culminate in a healing walk from the steps of the former Mohawk Institute to the end of the lane way before returning to the centre for the final roster of workshops and the keynote address.
Our vision is to create a healing space for Survivors, their families, and our communities.
Woodland Cultural Centre In partnership with Ontario Indian Residential School Support Services (OIRSSS), and Indigenous Legal Aid… invites Residential School Survivors, their families, local organizations and schools across communities to come together and participate in recognition of those First Nations Survivors who suffered and persevered through generations of abuse, loss of language and loss of culture.
**Orange TShirts will be on sale on site but no guarantee on sizes, so best come get one early!**

Did you know the Woodland Cultural Centre’s Education department offers crafts!? Pair one of our in-person programs with a craft like a wampum belt craft. During this craft, visitors have the opportunity to learn about the significance of wampum belts, where they came from, and how they're made, as well as the origins of the beads while learning how to make your own wampum-belt-inspired bracelet.
