The Georgina Island Storytelling Project

Our stories celebrate our heritage and identity as Chippewa people. They preserve and teach our Indigenous ways of knowing and knowledge for the future generations of Georgina Island. In the tradition of oral history over generations, our youth - in their turn - will carry on this legacy to protect and share our proud history and who we are as the Chippewas of Georgina Island.

Collectiva will hold Information Sessions on the Sixties Scoop Settlement Claim Process.

The Sixties Scoop Class Action concern any registered Indian or person eligible to be registered or Inuit person who was adopted or made a permanent ward and was placed in the care of non-Indigenous foster or adoptive parents in Canada between January 1, 1951 and December 31, 1991, which resulted in the loss of cultural identity.  Eligible class members could receive compensation between $25,000 and $50,000 depending on the overall number of eligible members.

 

 

Chippewas of Georgina Island Community Members

 

Ahneen!

My name is Dani Cotton and I am currently working for the band office on an important project: I am gathering stories, photographs, and information about our people to include in a book about the history of the Chippewas of Georgina Island. This book is being created to tell the stories of our community so they will not be lost and this way we can ensure our story is told our way. Through our stories, which span decades and encompass many topics determined to be important and characteristic of our people, we can retain our culture and pass our knowledge onto others. Therefore, I am seeking to acquire the stories of our people and to access photographs, news articles, etc. that may pertain to the Chippewas of Georgina Island and the following topics:

 

I would greatly appreciate any and all contribution you, as members of all ages, may have. This book is dependent on the stories of our people and it would be wonderful to be able to pass information through to further generations, as well as those seeking knowledge. Our stories are important and help people to understand us. This is a great opportunity to be heard.

Please reach me at Dani.Cotton@georginaisland.com, through the band office at 705-437-1337 or feel free to approach me if you see me

These were the 2 candidates who reached out to come to the First Nation to meet with Chief and Council and discuss the provincial election.
