for a chance to be featured during our National Indigenous History Month specials and in next year’s Legacy School material.
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) will be presenting four online events in June featuring different regions in Canada. Each of these 30–minute online features will have a community focus with national reach. This year we will highlight Indigenous knowledge, culture and perspectives throughout Quebec, British Columbia, and Treaty 9 around James Bay, Ontario. All the events will culminate in a special nationwide event at the end of June.
We are asking Legacy Schools throughout Canada to please send us photos, videos, lessons, presentations, and displays that encompass your Legacy School’s reconciliACTIONs celebrating Indigenous culture, hope, and unity.
Submissions can be sent through the form below. If you’re looking for tips on best practices for video, check out this shooting guide.
Inspired by Chanie’s story and Gord’s call to build a better Canada, the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund aims to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Our goal is to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians.
