Moccasin identifier education kits

To advance Treaty and Indigenous awareness, Halton Hills Public Library is proud to announce Moccasin Identifier Education Kits for borrowing.

Created by Carolyn King and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Moccasin Identifier is a teaching tool for truth and reconciliation focused on treaty relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Moccasin Identifier Education Kits include stencils based on drawings of historical moccasins of the Anishanaabe, Huron-Wendat, Seneca and Cree. The stencils are used to create temporary or permanent paintings of the moccasin designs. The intention is that individuals ground their learning through an art-based activity to actively reinforce teachings.

Reserve a Moccasin Identifier Education Kit through our Catalogue or join us at the drop-in programs offered at the Acton and Georgetown Branches. Visit our Program Calendar for more information and dates and times for each branch.
