Free BBQ Raffle for Dads June 21st

Posted 15/06/15 in EVENTS

The Woodland Cultural Centre is celebrating Aboriginal Solidarity Day (June 21st) by offering free admission to all how visit the museum on this day.  As June 21st also happens to be Father's Day this year, the Centre is also celebrating Dads (and those who act as "Dads") by giving away a BBQ.  All Fathers (and Fatherlike figures) who visit the Centre with their family on June 21st, 2015 are eligible to enter this free draw.  The lucky winner will be drawn and contacted on June 23rd to get their awesome new BBQ - just in time for summer.

Although the Haudenosaunee are a matriarchal and matrilineal society, Fathers (Uncles, Grandfathers, Older Brothers and Cousins, Male Role Model) play an important role in both modern and traditional life.  In the past, one's maternal uncle was the main teacher of hunting skills; while one's father was a source of love and protection.  Grandfathers were also a constant in a child's life - in fact, all older males in one's clan were called by the title To:tah or grandparent.  The Woodland Cultural Centre honours the role of Father/Uncle/Grandfather with this free draw.

Just another excellent reason to visit the Centre on Aboriginal Solidarity Day!!!
