Event description

Description

Join First Story Toronto for an interactive storytelling tour of the significant and enduring Indigenous presence along the Humber River. The tour will begin with an interpretive sneak peak of Resurge: First Timeline mural project which illuminates 13,500+ years of Indigenous people’s history and cosmology on Turtle Island. First Story Toronto guides will share stories of the historical significance of the area, Indigenous understandings of celestial bodies and their connection to terrestrial bodies. Participants will be invited to create and share their own star maps and hopes for the future. This tour is offered via the generous financial and logistical support of the Relay 2017.ca*. The tour is free but spaces are limited.
