Wàwàtesì means firefly in the Algonquin language. Fireflies symbolize the lighting of the trail & signify the passage of time, renewal, healing and the cycle of life.
The Wàwàtesì Algonquin Cultural Discovery Project will develop real world & virtual experiences introducing Algonquin art, culture, language & heritage to those who live & work in traditional Algonquin lands, as well as those who visit for business & leisure.
Significant funding has been obtained for the creation & renewal of local infrastructure & natural outdoor spaces as well as the curation of experiential, mobile web content — all shining a light on the rich legacy of the Algonquin People.
Watch for exciting details on the Wàwàtesì Algonquin Cultural Discovery Project coming in the fall of 2022.
