Stars over Killarney A Great Success

Point Grondine Park and Killarney Provincial Park collaborated in a Star Gazing event dubbed "Stars Over Killarney"

The event synchronized the science of Astrology and Anishinabek Constellation Teachings that have been passed down since we've been able to watch the cosmos pass by mother earth.

"The event was hosted at Killarney Provincial Park with presentations made by Elders and guides from the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory, Wikwemikong Tourism, and Point Grondine Park (kudos to Naomi Mishibinijima from Wikwimikong Tourism, who greatly assisted in the organization of the many elders and guides)! Will Morin, professor of Indigenous studies at the University of Sudbury, was a key organizer and presenter. We were also privileged to have the Waasa Naabin Youth Centre join us as highly enthusiastic guests.
