About this Event

Join us for an Indigenous Land Blessing event to pave the way for the construction of Thunder Woman Healing Lodge on its future site!

  • Where: 2217 Kingston Road, Toronto
  • When: 11:30am - 1:30pm, Sunday 20th September

The ceremony will begin at 12pm. Due to social distancing, participation on the site during the ceremony will be more limited than we would like, but we will create opportunities for community participation. All are welcome.

Update on Provincial gathering limits and Covid-19 protocols: Physical distancing practices have been integral to the planning for this event. Toronto Public Health has confirmed that the new limitations on private gatherings are not applicable to the Land Blessing Ceremony. That said, Covid-19 protocols will be applied for all attending.

For those who cannot attend in person, we will live stream the event. The actual ceremony will not be live streamed but we ask that during that time you offer prayers for the success of the Lodge. Keep up to date with live stream information via the Facebook event page.

About the Lodge:

An Indigenous owned and led women's Healing Lodge in the GTA is long overdue and the Covid-19 pandemic has made the need clearer than ever. The planned six-storey Thunder Woman Healing Lodge will be a unique model providing First Nation (Status and Non-Status), Inuit, and Metis 2SLGBTQIA+ women a combination of trauma-informed, culturally appropriate wrap-around services and affordable transitional housing under the same roof to support their journey out of the justice system toward wholeness and balance.

With only two other Indigenous-led healing lodges for Indigenous women in Canada, the Lodge will be the first of its kind in Ontario. In keeping with Indigenous teachings about Respect for the Land, TWHLS is striving to develop a Green Building showcasing principles of Indigenous architecture and Passive House design.
