Authentic Indigenous Experience

The Woodland Cultural Centre is an Indigenous education and cultural centre established in 1972 to protect, promote, interpret, and present the history, language, intellect and cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe and Onkwehon: we peoples. For over four decades the Woodland Cultural Centre has been a cultural and artistic leader with a vision that aims to demonstrate the highest standards of excellence in the practice, presentation and the interpretation of our arts and culture. This is achieved through our annual exhibitions, performances, workshops, and many other programs open to all!

The Woodland Cultural Centre has garnered a reputation as a resource for both indigenous and non-indigenous individuals and organizations. Resting on the grounds of the former Mohawk Institute within the city of Brantford, it was the first residential school in Ontario. With growing public awareness of the residential school system and the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions ‘Calls to Action’, we are filling a tremendous need from organizations, artists, media, academics, school groups, and the general public to educate through our programming.

There is a great wealth of knowledge and inspiration to be enjoyed from our indigenous communities and we take great pride in supporting and presenting these values through our annual arts and cultural programming. Visit us today — book a tour, stroll through our museum and galleries, experience the rich culture of Indigenous peoples!
