Chapter News – Oct. 2017

Great Lakes

Indigenous Peoples and P2 Practice 

How can the principles of P2 help us move towards reconciliation?

What actions can we take as an organization and as individuals?

IAP2 Great Lakes Chapter invites you to join us in a visit to the Woodland Cultural Centre to explore these and other important questions.  This event will include a traditional lunch sponsored by IAP2 Great Lakes Chapter, a tour of the museum and the residential school, and a workshop on First Nations Stereotypes and Racism.

The Woodland Cultural Centre is a non-profit organization which preserves and promotes the culture and heritage of the First Nations of the Eastern Woodland area. The Centre was established in 1972 under the direction of the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians upon the closure of the Mohawk Institute Residential School.  The Mohawk Institute Residential School operated in Brantford, Ontario from 1828 to 1970 as a boarding school for First Nations children from Six Nations, as well as other communities throughout Ontario and Quebec.

The Centre includes an art gallery, library and museum.  The Museum is one of the largest facilities in Canada managed and administered by First Nations.  With over thirty-five thousand artifacts, the Woodland Museum has been established to collect, preserve, research, exhibit and interpret a collection of archaeological material, historical material culture, arts, crafts, documents and archival photographs.  The collections are presented in a dramatic storyline beginning with our Iroquoian and Algonkian prehistoric past through to the 21st century.

Date: October 26th 2016

Time:  Noon to 4:00 p.m.

Location:  Woodland Cultural Centre 184 Mohawk St, Brantford

Event Cost: The total cost for the event is $16.00 payable on October 26 (Includes admission to the Woodland Cultural Centre and guided museum tour ($10); residential school tour ($3) and workshop ($3)).  Lunch is hosted by IAP2 Great Lakes.  Please join us!
