TO: Ontario Locals


We are thrilled to extend an invitation for a unique opportunity to learn and to honour the accomplishments and culture of Indigenous people at the National Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration at the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, Ontario. This special event will take place on June 23rd from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Woodland Cultural Centre, located on the grounds of the former Mohawk Institute (residential school).

The celebration will feature live cultural performances, Indigenous foods, an Indigenous market, and hands on workshops for all ages. You can explore the museum and galleries with the Centre’s Knowledge Guides, who will be provide tours and insights.

Unifor’s Ontario Regional Council BIWOC Committee will be hosting a refreshment tent throughout the day.

Any costs associated with attendance will be borne by individuals or locals choosing to attend. While there is no cost to the event, donations are strongly encouraged. As there is no ATM on site, participants are encouraged to bring funds with them for any purchases they might wish to make.

We are excited to encourage your involvement as we continue to pursue a path to truth and reconciliation. This event promises to be an enriching experience for all attendees, and we look forward to celebrating with you.

In solidarity,
