Description

The main focus of Through the Waves of History , canoe trip on the shores of Manitoulin Island is to look at First

Nation history from a First Nation’s perspective. Through the Waves of History is an opportunity for educators,

students and tourists to learn about a First Nations history that is not present in the Canadian education system.


The canoe trip will provide educators with the knowledge and understanding of how history was shaped by First

Nation contribution.


The stories and teachings will begin by looking at the effects of Residential Schools on individuals and

communities in the past and today, the war effort in World War 1 and 2, the fight for equal rights, current realities

in the communities, land claims and self-government. There will be stories from legends to day-to-day life in a

First Nations community. Each evening, participants will engage in unique campfire storytelling.
