The March 2018 instalment of Telling Our Stories Speaker Series will traverse approximately 11,000 years of Algonquin Park's unique cultural heritage. We will explore the living history of the Madaoueskarini Algonquin people, the arrival of European explorers such as David Thompson, chronicle the Park's value as a great timber resource and the infamous J. R. Booth, the arrival of great artists and adventurers, as well as the recent histories of Algonquin Park. This story will be told by a Madaoueskarini Omaamiwininii Anishinaabekwe, an Algonquin woman whose traditional territory is that of the headwaters of the Madawaska River.
Christine Luckasavitch is a Non-Status Algonquin Anishinaabekwe from Whitney, Ontario. She is the Owner of Waaseyaa Consulting, an Indigenous cultural heritage consulting company. An archaeologist, explorer, historian and researcher, she is writing her first book, Ondjitigweyaa Madaoueskarini Omamiiwiinini Anishinaabe (Algonquin People of the Madawaska River Headwaters). Christine holds a Bachelor of Arts from Acadia University.
This Speaker Series will be of interest to anyone with a love for Algonquin Park. We will explore its unique history from the time of glaciation to present-day, and beyond. Admission is $10 / per person. A portion of the proceeds will go to a conservation organization within the Haliburton Area.
