Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs

Sat. 20 Apr, 2019 10:00 am - Sun. 1 Sep, 2019 4:00 pm

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

Fri. 31 May, 2019 12:00 pm - Sun. 2 Jun, 2019 5:00 pm

Ignite your passion at the Georgian College Auto Show, 
May 31 to June 2 at the Barrie Campus

The 34th annual Georgian College Auto Show returns under the theme of “Ignited By Passion” at the Barrie Campus from May 31 to June 2.

It’s the largest outdoor, student-run new car auto show in Canada. The event is organized and staffed by students enrolled in automotive programs at the Automotive Business School of Canada (ABSC).

The 2018 show attracted just over 11,000 visitors from across Ontario. From the planning of the show to the wrap-up, only automotive students are involved. The student directors carry out all show tasks, including marketing, sponsorship, recruitment and training, event logistics and community events. Brand ambassadors and team leaders are also all automotive students.

This year’s team of directors is bringing back several popular attractions, such as the Electric Vehicle Driving Experience, a variety of food truck vendors and the ever-popular Pfaff Autocross Track. The annual live auction – an activity that show visitors look forward to every year – is also making a comeback and will take place on Saturday, June 1 at 1 p.m. As usual, proceeds from the auction go toward supporting scholarships for the Automotive Business School of Canada’s students.

Motorcycles will be an additional feature to this year’s show.

An expanded KidZone features new activities on Saturday and Sunday, including Smart Adventures Yamaha mini bikes for children aged six to 12, inflatable activities, face painting, as well as a LEGO car display and a new Let’s Go Camping activity. The Red Barn Event Centre will be onsite with their canine performance team hosting shows at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on both days. All proceeds from the Pfaff Autocross Track and the Yamaha mini bikes will benefit Youth Haven – a Barrie charity that helps local youth in need.

On Friday, May 31, all the manufacturer tents will be open to anyone keen on getting a jump on viewing the new vehicles before the weekend crowds. There will be a limited number of activities taking place, so visitors are encouraged to “pay what you can” for entry, with all proceeds going to Youth Haven.

The show runs Friday, May 31 from noon to 6 p.m.; Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Daily admission is $7 for adults. Children 12 and under are free, and parking on campus is free throughout the weekend. A full schedule of events and $5 discount tickets are available online.

Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs

Sat. 20 Apr, 2019 10:00 am - Sun. 1 Sep, 2019 4:00 pm

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs

Sat. 20 Apr, 2019 10:00 am - Sun. 1 Sep, 2019 4:00 pm

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs

Sat. 20 Apr, 2019 10:00 am - Sun. 1 Sep, 2019 4:00 pm

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."

Sat. 20 Apr, 2019 10:00 am - Sun. 1 Sep, 2019 4:00 pm

April 20 to Sept. 1 — Mnjikaning: Mapping The Life of the Gaudaurs. This exhibition will showcase the Gaudaur lineage through the family connection to the Atherley Narrows, civic contributions, and the family's sport legacy. After the war of 1812, Quebec voyageur, Antoine Godard (Gaudaur) met Chippewa Chief Big Shilling's daughter, Mary, to settle down on one of the town's first homesteads to raise a family. Their second son, Francis Gaudaur was born on April 13, 1819. The Gaudaur bloodline now represents the extended family of French Canadian, British, Indigenous members who helped to build this community. Ultimately, we will meet the family and their descendants who made Orillia and area their home 200 years ago.

DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here

Thu. 9 May, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 3 Aug, 2019 4:00 pm

May 9 to Aug. 3 — DERON AHSÉN:NASE DOUGLAS: We are still here. An exhibition consisting of 35 portraits and characterizations of the Onkwehón:we of Turtle Island. In a humble attempt to depict their strength, beauty and spirit, the artist utilizes bold colours, thoughtful design and in some cases, a touch of humour to shout out to history – “We Are Still Here.” Informed by the artist’s Mohawk culture and interest with Indigenous issues, the artist brings to the general public a glance at contemporary Indigenous people which he hopes will dispel colonial stereotypes. In the artist’s own words he would like to “take the Indian out of the history books and to present them, not as assimilated ghosts of what they once were or thought to be, but rather indigenous people with a vibrant and living culture all their own."
