The Wadrihwa was first published by the Woodland Cultural Centre in 1985 and remained a treasured resource for Indigenous culture, art and history for all of the surrounding communities. The newsletter was known for sharing the stories of the Centre and keeping the community engaged in all of the incredible programming available.
We are excited to revive Wadrihwa and aim to give you a direct line into the programs and events happening here at the Centre.
The word “Wadrihwa” is a Cayuga word meaning “Spread the Word” or “Spread the News” and we hope this this Newsletter will be a resource used by many to help us do that.
The goal of the Wadrihwa is to share the resources of the Woodland Cultural Centre with everyone who wants to learn and give you a glimpse inside of the many departments and programs available.
Printed copies of this 24 page edition will be available to our community partners. If you are interested in showcasing our newsletter in your office or organization, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on our Distribution List.
A digital pdf copy is available through email for everyone in the community.
Woodland Cultural Centre is excited to announce our partnership with Skateboard Project 2023!The Skateboard Project is an initiative that aims to promote Onkwehón:we artwork, active bodies, and collaboration between cultural centers across multiple Indigenous communities.In its second year, Kahnawà:ke, Kanehsatà:ke, Kenhtè:ke, Ahkwesáhsne and Six Nations came together to create seven skateboards graphics showcasing the range of styles and cultural imagery.Skateboard culture values inclusivity, individuality, creativity, and freedom and blending these with Indigenous traditions has created a project that connects communities through local art and skateboarding.Profits from the skateboard sales go towards compensation for the artist’s work and to help fund events related to June 21st (Go Skate Day/Indigenous Day/First Day of Summer).We hope to see more Indigenous communities being part of the project in the future!Woodland Cultural Centre is thrilled to participate in this fantastic community project. We will feature the seven skateboards from the participating artists in our online gift store and in the Stan Hill Gallery starting Saturday, February 18.
