Organizer: This is a joint presentation by the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Toronto Island Friendship Group.
This is a workshop for participants of all ages to stencil images of moccasins and other First Nations Footwear at locations throughout Toronto Island Park led by Carolyn King, former elected Chief of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This project has been done in other communities within the MNCFN treaty territory (including Trillium Park at Ontario Place) and aims to create a visual reminder to recognize and honour that we are on the traditional territory of indigenous peoples. Bringing this workshop to Toronto Island Park will also present the opportunity to engage with the park space creatively and thoughtfully. This workshop is especially suitable for school-age children and their parents.
