Summer Series - Aboriginal Experiences

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Thursday, August 8 at 12:30 pm

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series. These free concerts will take place at 12:30 pm every Thursday in July and August.

Experience the rich culture, teachings and history of Canada's First People from our own perspective. Our talented team of Aboriginal artists represent the Aboriginal community of Ottawa today - a diversity of native nations from across Canada (or Turtle Island as we know it). Aboriginal Experiences pride themselves on delivering a truly authentic experience that illustrates both the diversity of the Aboriginal cultures originating in Canada, and how they've progressed through the ages. Turtle Island Tourism Company was formed in partnership with the Odawa Native Friendship Centre, a cultural centre serving the Aboriginal community in the Capital region.
