Feather & Cross
The Feather & Cross project provides a safe space for Lutherans to learn about Indigenous practices and ways of life. We will nurture relationships and deepen our knowledge through a series of intergenerational workshops which explore Indigenous and Christian teachings, respecting the distinct spirituality of each tradition .The principle of multiage mentoring of youth-children, adults-youth, elders-children will provide opportunities for all to learn from one another. For Lutheran youth and adults, the Indigenous teachings will provide a framework to understand and appreciate the worldview and priorities of our Indigenous neighbours.
White Owl Sugarbush Event
I'm pleased to announce our first and most popular event of the spring season. Although we feel like spring has already arrived, the sap needs time to get ready, so we need it to get colder again. This year, Nathan Mantey and Indigenous Educator Dave Skene from White Owl Native Ancestry will present our 3rd Annual Sugar Bush Adventure. This family-friendly event will take place on Saturday, March 9th from 10 am to noon. Regardless of whether the sap is running or not, there's always something new to learn, so come out and enjoy.
Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear rain/snow boots and dress in layers.

Music for the Spirit
We are situated on land that is the traditional home of the Neutral, Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe Peoples. We extend our respect to all First Nations, Metis & Inuit Peoples for their past and present contributions to this land.
Kitchener-Waterloo is located on the Haldimand Tract, which, on October 25, 1784, after the American Revolutionary War of Independence, an area was given to the Six Nations of the Grand River by the British as compensation for their role in the war and for the loss of their traditional lands in Upstate New York . Of the 950,000 acres given to the Haudenosaunee (six miles on either side of the Grand River, all the way along its length), only 46,000 acres (less than 5 per cent) remain Six Nations land.
