it’s been a while

January 9, 2010

It has been a while since we last posted anything on this blog. It’s now January 9th and since August I have been working on art pieces that relate to the trek though I’ve not started the process of editing the video footage from the trek. I have viewed the tapes and feel like I need to return to the route of the trek, and in my return I will do some research at the Shingwauk archives.

all for now

    I came across this book with reference to Shingwauk: “It is with the view of making the wants of these poor people known, and of increasing the interest in a work which amid many difficulties, has for the past ten years been carried on among them, that these pages are written. The writer will tell what have been his experiences with the Indians since he first came to settle among them as a Missionary, and will describe how God in His providence gradually opened the way for him, how dangers were met, and difficulties overcome, and how in the end two Institutions for the Christian training and civilization of Indian children were brought into existence; the one called the Shinywauk Home, with accommodation for about seventy Indian boys, and the other called the Wavanosh Home with room for about thirty Indian girls,—both of them built, and now in active operation, at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, at the south-eastern extremity of Lake Superior.” source: book title ‘MISSIONARY WORK AMONG THE
