The 26th Annual Anishinaabemowin-Teg Conference will be held March 26 – 28, 2020 at Algoma University, in the reclaimed space of the former residential school called Shingwauk Hall. Algoma University works with many stakeholders and partners, including Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig, and welcomes you to come and experience the beautiful and resilient historic site. The land near the waters where Shingwaukonse dreamed of indigenous education that would support traditional and contemporary ways of being Anishinaabe. For a time, this place was dominated by a residential school which many survivors and their families remember. Today the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association collaborate with several community organizations, educators and First Nations to research, collect, preserve, and display the history of the residential and day schools across Canada. They also develop and deliver projects of sharing, healing, learning, and individual and community cultural restoration in relation to the impact of the schools. This can be a difficult place to visit, but it is also a site of incredible change and hope for the future.
