About Métis Crossing and Victoria Settlement
Métis Crossing is a Gathering Place located within the Victoria District National Historic Site along the North Saskatchewan River on the Historic Victoria Trail, in Smoky Lake County. Located on five original Métis River Lots that were established during the Fur Trade era, Métis Crossing is nestled in the center of the original Victoria Settlement which was a vibrant community of families from the many nearby river lots, Fort Victoria trading post, and the Victoria mission. Métis Crossing tells the story of the Alberta Métis, who are a distinct nation of Indigenous people whose diversity is woven together with strong commonalities. Through immersive interpretive programs that include Métis historical homesteads, land based learning opportunities, and the new Cultural Gathering Centre, visitors delight in authentic and meaningful experiences. Since being established, Métis Crossing has been a premiere place for the sharing of Métis culture, Métis gatherings, educational opportunities, and business development. »

Video: Faces of the North (ArtsCan Circle)

« Music video by youth in Attawapiskat.

ArtsCan Circle is proud to present Faces of the North a song and music video written, composed and performed by Indigenous youth in Attawapiskat, Ontario. Attawapiskat is a community of many different people, with many different experiences. The voices of youth are often the last to be heard, and yet may be the most important voices for the future of Indigenous Communities. Our ArtsCan Team of Filmmaker, Brendan Mariani, B Boy Dance Instructor/Producer, Lee Pham and Indigenous Singer/Songwriter, Mimi O’Bonsawin, worked together to create an incredibly powerful song and video, that captured the hearts and minds of the students of Vezina Secondary School in Attawapiskat.

This is the beauty and power of collaborative art projects that use a multi-disciplinary approach to create works of art that are informative, educational and emotionally powerful. For the youth, it is a way for them to express their feelings and experiences in a way that is lasting and impactful. This video will give you a snapshot of life in the north and hopefully encourage you to learn more about the wonderful, resilient young people who are working hard to find their way in the world. »

« This September 27-29, more than 40 Indigenous artists from across Northern Ontario will descend on Sault Ste. Marie to celebrate Northern Ontario’s top Indigenous talent with Dream Big 2019: Baawating Arts Festival.

The festival is presented by the Northern Indigenous Artist Alliance (NIAA) and will include performances, art exhibitions, and film screenings at various venues across the city. NIAA co-founder and board member, Rihkee Strapp, says, “These Dream Big events are open to the public and are all by donation. We are very thankful to have endorsement from Chief Dean Sayers of Batchewana and so many community members that have supported the organizing of this event. The beginnings of NIAA emerged from the first Dream Big in North Bay, so it is surreal to be hosting it in Baawating in 2019!”

Dream Big 2019 kicks off Friday night (September 27) with an art exhibition by Ojibway artist John Laford at Eeh jhii Bog mhe be og (commonly known as Baawating Gallery – 80 March St.); and continues Saturday (September 28) at Shingwauk Auditorium with a film screening of Thunderstone Pictures’ Coming Together to Talk with filmmaker Ardelle Sagutcheway, followed by a night of comedy featuring Sudbury comedian Kevin Shawanda and Batchewana’s Two-Spirit darling Teddy Syrette. On Sunday (September 29), March St. will temporarily close to traffic to make room for an outdoor Indigenous Arts Market showcasing the region’s top Indigenous arts, crafts, and food vendors. The festival closes Sunday afternoon with a musical performance by Anishinaabe musician Melody McKiver.

All events are open to the public and admission is free/Pay What You Can, thanks to support from the Ontario Arts Council. For more information, visit the Dream Big 2019 website at dreambignorth.com or contact northernindigenousart[at]gmail.com. »

DREAM BIG 2019: The Northern Conference and Festival for Indigenous Arts – Fundraising Campaign

« The Northern Indigenous Artist Alliance (NIAA) is an emerging, Indigenous-led provincial arts service organization with the mandate to support, promote, and advocate on behalf of Indigenous artists in Northern Ontario. NIAA was created in response to the lack of Indigenous arts leadership in the North, and with the belief that Indigenous artists are the experts on Indigenous art and on the communities and contexts in which they work. https://niaa.ca/

This Fall 2019, the Northern Indigenous Artist Alliance (NIAA) will host Dream Big 2019 in Baawating / Sault Ste. Marie. This gathering will bring together Indigenous artists, curators, critics and cultural organizations from across Northern Ontario for two days of collaboration and exchange as we seek to answer the question – what do Indigenous artists need to thrive in the North?

NIAA has received funding from the Ontario Arts Council to host Dream Big 2019 and is currently raising funds to help offset the high travel costs in the North so more Indigenous artists can attend the gathering. Featuring presentations, panel discussions, art creation, and performances, Dream Big attendees will be able to network, develop hands-on skills for promoting their work, widen their audiences, and add their voice to an ongoing dialogue about contemporary Indigenous arts in Northern Ontario. Your donation will help cover travel and accommodations so artists from all across Northern Ontario can take part.«
