We will gather at High Park  to honour and activate a walk created by the Ogimaa Mikana Project, by re-walking and re-mapping their work with our bodies. The walk will take us to a sequence of places around the park where we will pause for teachings and actions. The route we take reveals a map of a turtle. By renewing and remaking this walk by the Ogimaa Mikana Project, we take up the responsibility they have set before us, to make Anishinaabeg legible to the great turtle by walking and honouring the land and all Anishinaabeg. Bring: walking shoes, water, snacks, sun protection, raingear if needed. If you'd like to see the map we make as we walk, bring your favorite GPS tracking app on your phone.

 

Meet at: High Park main entrance on Bloor Street West, at the "High Park" sign
