Explore Anishinaabe Culture at the Museum

During the month of November the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre has partnered with the Sweet Grass and Thistles group based out of the Presbyterian Church in Southampton, along with the Wesley United Church on Saugeen First Nation to create and deliver “Bimaadziwin Workshops”.

Bimaadziwin means ‘the good path’; the Bimaadziwin Workshops will teach you more about Anishinaabe Culture and will explore themes of Truth and Reconciliation.
