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.
