I’m so thankful that I get to continually photograph and in the process, participate in so many wonderful events and causes put on by ONWA. Yesterday evening was yet another example with the Building our Bundles Launch would took place at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. The theme of the event was local indigenous women’s leadership through artwork, stories and digital storytelling. The featured artists of the evening were Candace Twance, Venessa Willow and Tony McGuire.
The purpose of the project is to create Indigenous-informed learning material for educators and students with a focus on Ojibwe women from the Robinson Superior region. Storytelling is fundamental for passing on knowledge, culture and language for future generations to learn, create meaningful engagements and honour their ancestors.
