This workshop will look at how Indigenous people organized their lives through the observation of the environment (i.e. Animals, Seasons, and Star Knowledge) and how all these become Land-based Knowledge and survival tools for Indigenous People. In this session, Philip will focus on Star-knowledge and the Thirteen-moon Calendar. Philip organizes his workshops with a smaller group dynamic. Content focuses on wildlife pictography, its importance to Indigenous people, and how ancestors spoke about the organization of wildlife through painting animals in the woodland style.
All our community workshops are free, however, they are intended for community members who live or work within a 1km radius of the Village of Islington. This project is designed to more accurately represent the people who live and work in this community so we want to make sure that registration is targeted to community members.
Please note that a Zoom link will be sent in a confirmation email.
This project is supported through Toronto Arts Council Strategic Funding.
