ACE IS INVITED AS AN ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE FOR THE 2020 MANITOULIN ISLAND SUMMER HISTORICAL INSTITUTE (MISHI)

Ace is an artist-in-residence for the upcoming 2020 Mantioulin Island Summer Historical Institute (MISHI).

The History of Indigenous Peoples (HIP) Network, a research cluster of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University, is partnering with the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation (OCF) to offer the Manitoulin Island Summer Historical Institute (MISHI). The Summer Institute will focus on Anishinaabe-centred history and will involve students and scholars from university and Anishinaabe communities. The goals of MISHI are: to teach participants about Anishinaabe history on Manitoulin Island, with a focus on site-specific experiential learning; support the historical and educational resources of the OCF; and to build bridges and strengthen the relationships and cooperation between OCF and York University.

MISHI’s overarching focus is Manitoulin Island-based Anishinaabe history from an Anishinaabe perspective. Every summer school has specific themes, such as education, environment, gender, material culture, art, doodems, among many others.
