Bridge Builders: Partnering with the Atikokan Native Friendship Centre
A partnership with the Atikokan Native Friendship Centre and Atikokan Centennial Museum to create an exhibit, Revealing the Regalia, to recognize Jaret Veran’s experience and to honour local Anishnaabe traditions. Jaret also participated in the Indigenous Youth Gathering of 300 dancers at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This exhibit was a powerful bridge connecting our cultures, creating a meaningful dialogue. The exhibit opening was a successful first step in engaging the local Aboriginal population in our community.
