About Truth and Reconciliation Project

Native Renaissance is honoured to be hosting the "Truth and Reconciliation Project" exhibition from September 30th (National Day for Truth and Reconciliation) until October 31st, 2022.

The exhibition will feature 139 paintings by local artist Ken Leighton, representing the total number of federally funded schools in the Canadian Indian residential school system.

The paintings in this truth-telling exhibition are not for sale. Rather, donations will be gratefully accepted on behalf of the Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na Language and Culture Centre (TTO) in Deseronto. They can be viewed daily from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..

Starting at 7:00 p.m. on September 30th a free, pre-opening concert will be given on-site by local Mohawk singer, songwriter and recording artist, Jonathan Maracle. All are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: The exhibition and the concert will be located upstairs and therefore may not be accessible to all whom wish to attend. Additional venues for the Truth and Reconciliation Project will be announced as they are secured.
