First Nations Week at the Powassan Library

Powassan and District Union Public Library will be celebrating First Nations Week until February 17th.  This year’s theme encourages libraries to foster human connection, family socialization, and relationship building. The Library will be hosting two workshops in celebration.

On February 14, Algonquin/ Ojibway Artist, Russell Noganosh will be leading a workshop in acrylic woodland style painting. Woodland style painting is characterized by bright colours, bold outlines, spirit lines, abstract forms, and nature subjects. This school of painting began with Norval Morrisseau in the late 1950s. This workshop will be $40 and has all materials included. The Northern Arts and Crafts Movement are facilitating this workshop.

On February 16, the Nipissing Regional Curatorial Collective will be hosting a Treaty Transcription Event as a part of the larger Treaty Canoe Voyageur Project. This workshop is free and all materials will be provided. Participants will be asked to transcribe a treaty using a dip pen and India ink on rice paper. These treaties will be used to construct a canoe that will start in Windsor and end in Ottawa for the 150th Anniversary.
