2022 beading activity

Orange Shirt Pin

The Bracebridge Public Library invited Theresa Buker (Diligent Harvester) to come and lead a simple beading workshop. The Orange Shirt Pin was chosen so that everyone could remember–EVERY CHILD MATTERS.

It was a great activity, enjoyed by all who participated.

TRC Day-2021

NisoMakwa started a journey of healing in 2021. By tying orange ribbons around the Bracebridge Falls, he caught the attention of many, including the Muskoka Indigenous Friends Cultural Centre. Together, along with others in the community, over 7,000 orange ribbons were tied to the railings on September 18. Then a month later, everyone gathered again to solemnly remove these ribbons.

These ribbons will be repurposed into a very large community quilt. A quilt aimed at keeping the conversation of Truth and Reconciliation going.
