Lawrence Cheechoo, Cree from the Moose Cree First Nation in Northern Ontario will be joining us at Pacha Arts for an afternoon of storytelling!
Growing up in Northern Ontario surrounded by family, nature and wild
animals, fostered Lawrence’s interest in Cree tradition, language, and history.

“Since an early age I was taught the importance of acknowledging and understanding one’s own cultural identity. From a young age my parents would tell stories of our past. The stories about hardship and survival and the legends from our ancestors that teach us about our relation to the world around us both spiritual and natural. Even still as I tell these stories there is still a lesson in them that still resonates with me.

Living in the city of Toronto offers many opportunities to learn about and observe people and culture. I am a firm believer that any value placed in one’s own cultural heritage will go a long way to understanding the value in another’s cultural heritage as well.

As an indigenous person I feel that through compassion, responsibility, respect and love that we can fulfill our ultimate role to ourselves, each other and our community.
