Facing the Truths of History, Forging a Path Together

Be part of something special this October and November. Three events. Three Saturdays. One exciting program: Reclaiming Cultural Identity.

In partnership with the Niagara Regional Native Centre the Niagara Falls History Museum is presenting workshops and talks on Wampum Belts, Indigenous Beadwork in Niagara and Creation Stories. Led by Rick Hill (Beaver Clan of the Tuscarora Nation) experts share their wisdom and skill, and attendees participate in creating lasting items.

Every workshop will run from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Niagara Falls History Museum, 5810 Ferry St., Niagara Falls, ON, L2G 1S9

As Senator Murray Sinclair says, “Education is what got us into this mess… education is the key to reconciliation.” Each workshop is intended as a step toward a deeper understanding of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous nations. A perspective of the past and the present gives us a path to the future. A shared path for everyone.

This program is for Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees, and for people of all ages. Special programming has been arranged for children in attendance.
