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.
