On Thursday, October 4, 2012 the Nah duh mah duh win committee will be organizing a day trip to the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, Ontario. Attendees will receive a guided tour of the Woodland Museum and the Mohawk Institute, the oldest continuously operated Anglican residential school in Canada. The tour combines survivor stories (shared with the Cultural Interpreters) with the physical space that once comprised the dormitories, cafeteria, playroom, sewing room, and other portions of the school.
The purpose of this trip is to give individuals an opportunity to engage in a process of remembering and begin to undertake a deeply critical reflective re-examination of history and themselves.
Transportation will be provided through Aboutown Charters. Two pick up locations have been arranged for your convenience. The bus will leave London at 9:00 am and will return to London at approximately 2:00 pm. Please note that we are only able to accommodate a maximum of 28 people.
The cost of this trip is $20.00. This registration fee covers your admission into the museum and supports the cost of transportation. Lunch will be provided. Registration information and payment options are available online at http://nffw.pcrnet.ca/register/ Enter session code 1SJ7CQY
If you have any further questions about this experiential learning opportunity, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for registration is Friday September 28, 2012.
