We will be here on July 1st, offering an open, welcoming space for community to gather just as we’ve always done. This year we are also starting some new conversations and traditions to bring us all closer together.

Oodena and The Gathering Space in Niizhoziibean

We’ll open the day at 8AM with a morning ceremony led by Elders Wanbdi Wakita and Pahan Pte San Win in Oodena, with additional pipe ceremonies held throughout the day. Both Oodena and The Gathering Space at Niizhoziibean will be maintained as quiet spaces for healing, with Indigenous-led music, dance, and sacred fires. The last ceremony will be held at supper time.

From 10AM to 6PM, visit the Historic Rail Bridge (between Oodena and Niizhoziibean) to take part in tobacco tie workshops.
