New teaching lodge takes shape –

A youth led project saw the construction of a temporary teaching lodge at Prince Arthur’s Landing for National Aboriginal Day and Canada Day celebrations.

THUNDER BAY – A new safe space to share cultural stories and heritage is taking shape at Prince Arthur’s Landing, and while it is only temporary, organizers hope it will help raise awareness about cultural issues.

Construction began on a new teaching lodge at the Spirit Garden Tuesday morning. The project is a collaborative effort between Blue Sky Community Healing Centre, Paro Centre for Women’s Enterprise, and the Rites of Passage Project.
