SHINGWAUK PROJECT (SP), RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS CENTRE (CENTRE), CHILDREN OF SHINGWAUK ALUMNI ASSOCIATION (CSAA), AND NATIONAL RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS SURVIVORS’ SOCIETY (NRSSS) Shingwauk Project and Centre Director: Don Jackson, B.A. (Hons), M.A., Ext. 4322 Shingwauk Project and Centre Coordinator: Ed Sadowski, Eng. Tech., B.A. (Hons), M.Sc., Ext. 4622 Centre Archives Technician: Krista McCracken, B.A. (Hons), M.A., Ext. 4622 Digital Archives Technician: Michelle McMillan, B.A., Ext. 4622 The Shingwauk Project is a cross-cultural research and educational development project of Algoma University (AU) and the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA). It was founded in 1979 by its current Director in collaboration with Dr. Lloyd Bannerman of AU, Chief Ron Boissoneau (1935-2000) of Garden River, Shingwauk Alumnus and Elder Dr. Dan Pine Sr. (1900-1992) of Garden River, and other former Shingwauk and Wawanosh students and friends who recognized the profound importance of the commitment to the Shingwauk Trust and the relationship with Canada’s First Nations that Algoma University assumed upon its relocation in 1971 to the site of the former Shingwauk and Wawanosh Indian Residential Schools. The Shingwauk School, or “Teaching Wigwam”, was originally envisaged by the great Ojibway Chief Shingwaukonse (1773- 1854), also known as Shingwauk, as a crucible for cross-cultural understanding and for synthesis of traditional Anishinabek and modern European knowledge and learning systems. Commissioned in 1832 in co-operation with Canadian Government and Anglican Church partners as part of St. John’s Mission to the Ojibway, the Shingwauk School was opened in Sault Ste. Marie in 1833. It relocated to Garden River (1838-74), and to the current site as the Shingwauk and Wawanosh Industrial Homes (Shingwauk 1874-1935 and Wawanosh 1876/96-1935) and the Shingwauk Indian Residential School (1935-70). As part of Chief Shingwauk’s new strategy of Aboriginal rights, self-determination and modern community development, the School’s cross-cultural educational project was also regarded as essential to the restoration of cosmological balance and of social harmony between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians, and between both Peoples and the natural environment. Inspired by Shingwauk’s Vision, the Shingwauk Project, the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA – former students of the Shingwauk and Wawanosh Schools, and staff, descendants, families and friends) and the National Residential School Survivors’ Society (NRSSS - former Indian, Inuit and Metis Residential School students from across Canada) are partnered with Algoma University, the Anglican Church, the Shingwauk Education Trust (SET), the Dan Pine Healing Lodge, and others to: research, collect, preserve and display the history of the Residential Schools; develop and deliver projects of “sharing, healing and learning” in relation to the impacts of the Schools, and of individual and community cultural restoration; and accomplish “the true realization of Chief Shingwauk’s Vision”. In 2006, Algoma University College signed the Shingwauk Covenant with Shingwauk Education Trust further cementing this commitment. In 2008, Algoma University College received its University Charter with the special mission of cross-cultural Aboriginal education and research, in keeping with the history of the site. 24 ALGOMA UNIVERSITY

Chapter 2 Through their partnership, the CSAA, NRSSS and Algoma University have established the Residential Schools Centre (Centre) as a Research, Archive and Visitors’ Centre which under shared direction with the University’s Wishart Library collects, catalogues, stores, displays and shares Residential School artefacts, photographs, documents and resources donated and collected. The Centre is partnered with many other Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups and is committed to developing a national network of development and sharing in relation to all aspects of the Residential Schools legacy. The Shingwauk Project, the Centre CSAA and NRSSS have undertaken many activities since 1979 including reunions, healing circles, publications, videos, photo displays, curriculum development, historical tours and the establishment of archive, library and heritage collections, as well as a Shingwauk Directory and websites (;; and Since the establishment of NRSSS in 2004 these activities have been broadened to serve Residential School Survivors, Alumni and Canadians nationally. Their joint “Remember the Children: National Residential Schools Photo Identification Project” continues to be one of the most welcomed and appreciated initiatives of the Residential Schools Centre. Over many years and in many ways the Project and the Centre have been generously supported by Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal governments, churches, non-governmental organizations and individuals. All involved are most grateful for the understanding and kindness that have made this small part of our larger national journey of “sharing, healing and learning” possible. NORTHERN ONTARIO RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT IDEAS AND KNOWLEDGE CENTRE (NORDIK) Director: Dr. Gayle Broad, Ext. 4351 NORDIK’s mission is to promote more vibrant, caring and sustainable communities through research, dialogue, analysis and reflection, dedicated to the practice of holistic community development. NORDIK is a not-for-profit community-based research institute with two areas of focus: 1) Regional development in Northern Ontario; and 2) Indigenous research. NORDIK collaborates with community partners to build resilient, sustainable communities in Northern Ontario, with a focus on small, rural, and First Nation communities. It uses a holistic approach to facilitating research and community development, emphasizing research processes that are inclusionary, participatory and strengths-based. NORDIK encourages students, faculty and staff to participate in its research projects through internships, work-study placements, summer employment and scholarships. ALGOMA GAMES FOR HEALTH Director: Dwayne Hammond, Ext. 3126 Algoma Games for Health is a video game development studio with a focus on research and development of game technology for health care applications, particularly video games for rehabilitation and therapy. Algoma Games for Health is a serious games initiative bringing together researchers, medical professionals, and game developers to improve health and health care and to forge connections between the video game and health care communities. This initiative will: 1) improve lives by providing practical solutions to everyday problems faced by people with disabilities and those encountering old age, through innovative approaches to rehabilitation and therapy; 2) get creative ideas out of the research labs and into the market so that people can use them as soon as possible; 3) develop cost effective treatments that help people remain independent and healthy, keeping them out of long-term health facilities and hospitals while lessening costs to the health care system. ALGOMA UNIVERSITY AND MINISTRY OF NATURAL RESOURCES’ ONTARIO FOREST RESEARCH INSTITUTE Contact: Dr. A. Perlini, Dean, Algoma University email: Algoma U and OFRI have facilities that complement one another’s mandate for creating and transferring knowledge. OFRI’s growth chambers and greenhouses, arboretum and research plots, as well as inorganic chemical, biochemical and pathology laboratories are important for forest research. Algoma University’s information and communication technology infrastructure provides a means to build, commercialize and transfer research-based technologies. The sharing of resources expands each organization’s capacity. For example, through its Seminar Series OFRI features experts on various science-related topics, such as forest research and wildlife management. These seminars include student-researchers, as the training of future scientists is integral to sustainable forestry research and management. ALGOMA UNIVERSITY AND GREAT LAKES FORESTRY CENTRE (GLFC) Contact: Dr. A. Perlini, Dean, Algoma University email: Through sharing of resources and expertise, this partnership is creating a life sciences research and education program that exceeds the potentials of what either organization could accomplish independently. The partnership encourages the sharing of intellectual resources, creation of partnered research projects, pursuit of research funding in partnership, and active mentorship of university students by top Canadian researchers housed at GLFC/ CFS. This partnership links university education to active research and to the emerging domain of entrepreneurship and science-based commercial activities, this creating more opportunities for new ideas, initiatives and businesses to emerge. 2-ASSOCIATED ORGANIZATIONS ALGOMA UNIVERSITY 25
