Reclaiming Cultural Identity is a program supporting Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe communities in expressing, preserving, developing and reclaiming their identity by promoting their culture, language and heritage.
The foundation of this Niagara Falls Museums & Niagara Regional Native Centre initiative is a series of workshops and socials designed to encourage and enable the participation of the local Indigenous communities as well as members of the non-Indigenous population.
Be part of something special this October and November. Three events. Three Saturdays.
In partnership with the Niagara Regional Native Centre the museum is presenting workshops and talks on Wampum Belts, Indigenous Beadwork in Niagara and Creation Stories. Led by Rick Hill (Beaver Clan of the Tuscarora Nation) experts share their wisdom and skill, and attendees participate in creating lasting items.
