BRANTFORD—The Woodland Cultural Centre is presenting two screenings of the Mohawk Institute Residential School Virtual Tour in August as a fundraiser for the Save the Evidence fundraising campaign.
The Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School operated in Brantford, Ontario from 1828 to 1970. It served as a boarding school for First Nations children from Six Nations, as well as other communities throughout Ontario and Quebec. It served as a key tool in the effort to assimilate First Nations children into European Christian society and sever the continuity of culture from parent to child.
