The Silver Covenant Chain and Canoes

The Silver Covenant Chain and Canoes lesson supports young learners knowledge of the diverse shared history of Turtle Island.

This session is supplemented with expert knowledge from Tyendinaga Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na (Tyendinaga Language and Culture Centre). After the live session, there will be a question and answer period with a knowledgeable special guest!
