Anmar Mechanical and Electrical Contractors funds Wiidokaaziwin — ‘The Gathering Place’
Cambrian College in Sudbury is now home to Wiidokaaziwin — ‘The Gathering Place’ — and scholarships for Indigenous students thanks to a $100,000 donation by Anmar Mechanical and Electrical Contractors.
Wiidokaaziwin is a classroom and community space for traditional Indigenous teachings and ceremonies. The school unveiled the new space during an event on Nov. 10.
The entrance to Wiidokaaziwin features two hand-carved wood statues, donated to the college by Indigenous artist William Bondy. The statues depict parents holding young children, representing family and protection.
Open to all members of the Cambrian community, Wiidokaaziwin is modelled after the medicine wheel and its four colours (black, red, yellow, white).
