Point Pelee and Pelee Island are the heart of our ancestral territory. Caldwell First Nation will exercise its responsibility to use, possess and protect the air, waters, lands and resources as it has from time immemorial. According to customs, the People continue to work in harmony with Mother Earth to preserve, protect, harvest, hunt and fish from the wealth of her resources. That respect continues today.
There is no greater power than bringing people together to share ideas and culture. In this online experience, guests will be able to hear a children & adult friendly Ojibwa Creation Story telling the legend of Turtle Island & the Great Flood.
The Ojibwa and some other First Nations people, refer to the North America as Turtle Island. Different tribes have different ways of telling this legend of how this part of the world was created. Through puppetry, music and fun join us in hearing Caldwell First Nation share their story about their people, land, water and the creation of Turtle Island.
Guests will leave feeling engaged, educated and inspired by the First Nation people of Caldwell. During this time of truth & reconciliation, it is important to share our story and for the youth of today to learn from an early age Indigenous Culture in North America. Miigwech!
