Woodland Cultural Centre Field Trip
This field trip is for students in Grades 1–5, 7, and 10.
Formerly known as the Mohawk Institute Residential School, the Woodland Cultural Centre operated as a residential school until 1970 and was the oldest continuously Anglican-operated residential school in Canada. In 1972, ownership of the school was transferred to the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians who established a museum and cultural centre at the site. Linden students will tour the centre to learn about the history of colonization and broken treaties, as well as the traditions of the Woodland people before Europeans arrived. They will also participate in a clay beading workshop.
