Turtle Island Walking Tour

Oct 11, 2022

On October 4th, a small group of Mentorship Participants gathered at the University of Windsor to meet with Russell Nahdee, the Coordinator of the Aboriginal Education Centre at the University of Windsor. Nahdee led the group on the ‘Turtle Island Walking Tour’ a tour designed by Nahdee that leads participants through the University campus and West Windsor to learn more about the history of the land.

For many of the professionals in the Mentorship Program, reconciliation is at the forefront of their practice as they continually strive to better serve all children and families in the community. Having this opportunity to further their understanding is one step in an ongoing journey towards reconciliation.
