Welcome to NCNW’s inaugural event, Blockers & Attackers: Indigenous Women in Sports Leadership. This lunch webinar will take place on Saturday, September 19th from 11AM-1PM. The theme of the luncheon is Indigenous Women in Sports Leadership. We have two outstanding competitive Indigenous female athletes here to share their experiences and success stories. Our featured speaker is Waneek Horn-Miller, the first-ever Mohawk woman from Canada to compete in the Olympic games. She also won a gold medal for Canada’s water polo team among many other outstanding accomplishments. Waneek is a motivational speaker and fights against racism and unfair treatment of Indigenous athletes. Additionally, our youth guest speaker is Jessica Ghosen, a roller derby team member of the Queen City Roller Derby located in Buffalo, New York. Jessica continues to compete and win nationally on an all-star team named Lake Effect Furies. Full of passion, she has a mission to represent Indigenous women who face challenges and risks in their day-to-day lives. We know that we can count on you to help us make this event our best one yet!

The Poppy Project is a collaborative community ART PROJECT by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick ‘N Needles Guild. The Museum is inviting you to work on this large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the Museum for Remembrance Day. Our goal is 2500 poppies by September. The public is asked to create these poppies at home or at the Museum (once it is reopened) at regularly scheduled events throughout 2020. During the current crisis, we would love to see social media posts with you making poppies #nfpoppyproject and tag the Museum. Until the museum reopens, please keep your poppies at home. We will be developing plans for drop off once the museum is back open. Members of the Stick’N Needles Guild will be on hand to help participants with the poppy patterns. Coffee, tea and yarn will be provided at these events, but please bring your own needles or hook if you have them. This event is brought to you by the Niagara Falls History Museum and the Stick’N Needles Guild
