Indigenous Cultural Workshops
On Saturday, July 6th and Sunday, August 18th, 2019, in recognition of the past, present and future cultural and historical contributions that all First Nation peoples have made in Kingston, three Indigenous Cultural Workshops hands-on cultural workshops will be presented simultaneously for a duration of approximately 50 minutes each. The workshops will run concurrently from 11am – 3pm, with 10 minutes between each.
The three workshops are:
Birch Bark Canoe
A traditional Ojibway teaching on the importance of the birch bark canoe and participants make a 3-inch canoe to take home.
A traditional Haudenosaunee teaching on the importance of the turtle shared with the Creation Story. Each participant will paint a turtle out of rocks to take home.
Corn Husk Dolls
A traditional teaching on the corn husk dolls taught by a Mohawk facilitator. Each participant will construct their own corn husk doll and the story of these dolls will be shared. Participants will take their dolls home.
