September 7th will mark the opening of a special place in Collingwood.  As the first project of Collingwood’s new waterfront master plan, an Indigenous Gathering Circle has been built to celebrate the Indigenous heritage of the region and the country.

The installation has been constructed on the top of a berm in Harbourview Park behind the MacDonald’s restaurant on First Street. The design is intended to replicate a food forest with seven cedar pillars topped by steel canopies with benches along the bottom.  Each bench features one of the seven grandfather teachings of wisdom (Nbwaakaawin), love (Zaagidowin), respect (Mnaadendimoowin), bravery (Aakide’ewin), honesty (Gwekwaadiziwin), humility (Dbadendizwin) and truth (Debwewin).

The project was designed in consultation with four Indigenous architects with guidance and vision coming from Dr. Duke Redbird, an elder with the Saugeen First Nation as this article in Collingwood Today explains.

Hubby and I took a wander up last week-end and can see it will become another iconic landmark of beauty and peace in our town.
