As part of a four year National Council of Women of Canada  program  on Missing and Murdered Indigenous  Women and Girls ,  the Niagara District Council of Women is holding a cross-country zoom meeting on Wednesday April 20th   regarding “Truths about Indigenous History in Niagara –the Challenging Present and the Way Forward to Reconciliation”.

The featured speaker is Metis educator Michele–Elise Burnett, co-owner of   the Kakekalanicks Indigenous Consulting company  which has developed  unique  arts and educational programs across Niagara, such as  the yearly ‘Celebration of Nations event, and Landscape of Nations, 360 0

Most recently , Michele- Elise has  helped young Indigenous  people showcase their  creative skills in her  shared First Ontario Performing Arts Centre ‘Platforms for People’  programs e.g. the  April 4th  Indigenous Musical Show  Case,  and is currently working on her  special “Red Dress” program to  shine  a light on  the   challenges of the present and  a way forward to reconciliation.

Michele -Elise has been a leading light  in bringing  Niagara’s  Indigenous  history to life,  and initiating programs  to educate, entertain and help us  recognize and take individual and group action to make the future better in  creative and positive Indigenous  ways.

In doing this  Michele-Elise  urges us all to consider this question:” Why is it so challenging when all we have to do is follow the simple original instructions of living in peace and harmony with  one another and all living things.?”
