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.

The lacrosse clinic from August 6-9 was a great hit with the Georgina Island youth! Four days of lacrosse skills and fun with up to 17 youth participating! Many thanks to Nancy Lewis, Tracey Sillaby, Susan Lewis and Harrison Sillaby, Coach Chet and all the volunteers who came out to help. A very big thank you to Donna Hori and the Frank H. Hori Charitable Foundation for their generous donation to our program which enabled us to purchase lacrosse equipment, including nets, sticks, helmets, gloves, balls and more!
