The Woodland Cultural Centre (WCC) offers a variety of virtual tours, education programs, and workshops that provide interested visitors with the opportunity to learn about an assortment of topics covering the past, present, and future of Southern Ontario’s First Nations Peoples.
Join us on September 26, 2022 at 12:30 p.m. for a tour of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School. The tour gives the history of the school from when it opened in 1831, until it closed in 1970. Participants will see different rooms in the school, from the meeting room, the girls’ and boys’ dorms, the third floor, cafeteria, and various rooms in the basement. After the presentation participants will have the opportunity to ask questions or share comments with the Cultural Interpreter.
The Woodland Cultural Centre (WCC) was established in October 1972, under the direction of the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians upon the closure of the Mohawk Institute Residential School (MI).
As an organization with historical expertise and strong community connections, WCC has a key role to play in knowledge and learning through its program offerings, including education, museum, language, library and arts.
