Shingwauk Hall was first established in 1873 as a residential school for First Nations children and operated as such under the name Shingwauk Indian Residential School until it closed in 1970. Since then, with the help of survivors and the Children of Shingwauk, it has become a gallery teaching about the dark history of Canada’s residential school system. It is also home to Shingwauk Kinomaage Gamig, an Anishinaabe post-secondary institution (University) that has been developed by the Shingwauk Education Trust (SET). Visit the gallery yourself or take a guided tour to learn about Chief Shingwauk’s vision and how it is being recognized today.
