Woodland Cultural Centre - quilt #2

  3. it's a beautiful quilt and I enjoy seeing museums and visitor centers honoring Native cultures. It always seems as if we have a lot to learn from them (a lot we should have learned).

  4. I think it's a better cultural centre than it was a residential school.

    1. For sure! It is a good repurposing for the building.
