August 17, 2022 – Mohawk Institute Residential School Virtual Tour

The Woodland Cultural Centre presents a screening of the Mohawk Institute Residential School on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm. Your donation will help support virtual programming at the Woodland Cultural Centre and ensure that we can continue to deliver the highest quality programs centered on a Hodinohsho:ni worldview, celebrating, and sharing Indigenous cultures, languages, and art.

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 Indian 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.

Cost: $10 donation to the education department at the Woodland Cultural Centre
