Several exhibits as part of the Legacy of Hope are now on display in Kincardine and an official kick-off celebration was held last Saturday at the Welcome Centre at Victoria Park. The exhibits are meant to create awareness of the residential school system, encourage acts of reconciliation and recognize the history, heritage, resilience and diverstiy of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit People.
Visitors are invited to view these free exhibits in two locations:” Youth on Reconciliation – Imagine a Canada” at the Kincardine Welcome Centre, 707 Queen Street, and “Remembering, Honouring, and The Way Forward: 10 Years After the Indian Residential School Apology” and “Killing the Indian in the Child: Generations Lost” can be seen at the The Walker House, 235 Harbour St.
The Municipality of Kincardine has several activities planned in honour of National Indigenous History Month. Visit www.kincardine.ca/journey-to-reconciliation.
