Organizer: Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Toronto Island Friendship Group.
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 numerous locations within the MCFN treaty territory (including Trillium Park at Ontario Place) and aims to create a visual reminder that we are on the traditional territory of indigenous peoples.
Carolyn designed the workshop to be repeated as an annual reminder of Indigenous history and presence and doing this workshop on Toronto Island again will be both an opportunity to engage with the park space creatively and thoughtfully as well as to build on last year's learning. This workshop is especially suitable for school-age children and their parents.
