Moccasin Identifier Project - CANCELLED

Stencil your canoe with a moccasin as an act of reconciliation.Moccasin_Picture.png

Join us to hear from Carolyn King and to learn about the Moccasin Identifier Project. Bring your canoe so that it can be stencil painted with a moccasin as an act of reconciliation.

Initiated, designed, and led by the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Moccasin Identifier is a teaching tool and public awareness-building program for Treaty relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Canadians. With stencils in-hand, Carolyn and the Moccasin Identifier team have travelled across Southern Ontario teaching about Treaties, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Indigenous relationship to land.

The Moccasin Identifier uses four moccasin symbols reflective of the Indigenous diversity of Ontario. These stencils are adapted by acclaimed Indigenous artist Phil Coté from the original 16th century moccasins in the private collection of the Bata Shoe Museum.

Since 2011, the Moccasin Identifier has worked at a grassroots level visiting over 1,000 schools, universities, workshops, major events, opening ceremonies, and celebrations, reaching over 10,000 people. In 2014, Carolyn worked with the City of Toronto to create a one of a kind Moccasin Identifier stone installation at Ontario Place’s new Trillium Park on Toronto’s waterfront. In 2018, Moccasin Identifier received a two-year grant from the Greenbelt Foundation. This boosted the program to the next level by building capacity, launching a website, producing and testing the pilot educational kit, and gathering all of the archaeology of the Greenbelt for the Moccasin Identifier Installations.
