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."

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."
