Lead-Up Events and Activities 2021-22

2021-22 Lead-up Events & Activities

In order to prepare for the celebration of More than 350 Years in the Making: From Time Immemorial to 1673 to 2023, our More than 350 in 2023 committee is holding regular committee meetings that are always open to the public and new members, as well as larger public meetings.

We are also holding lead-up events and activities that celebrate or foster interest in our history, heritage and culture.  The MRHHA is leading the organization of some of these events and activities, but, whenever possible, we are partnering with other organizations on existing or new events and activities. If you have an event you are planning or would like to plan, and would like to give it a "More than 350" heritage or cultural flavour, please contact us. We have funding available to support events.

E tipachimonaniwahk - Celebrating Our Storytelling
Sunday, March 28, 2021 - 18:30 to 20:30

This video is the result of our inaugural lead-up event for the "More than 350 in 2023" initiative. Wanting to promote and celebrate our wintertime tradition of storytelling, we set up a storytelling contest and invited submissions of all kinds. The grand prize was given to Keira Kataquapit. The resulting video, which you can watch here, is a compilation of submissions by contestants and others, as well as archival footage and photos (including the oldest film footage of Moose Factory or Moosonee. It also includes interviews and introductions by our More than 350 in 2023 Committee, our Save St. Thomas Committee, as well as the MRHHA Board Chairperson and some of our staff.

The original video was broadcast live, on March 28, 2021, on the local community channel (10), and on YouTube. It is being revised to include a full version of the first prize submission (which could not be included in the original broadcast due to technical issues) as well as other minor edits. The new version will be available here and on our YouTube channel soon.

The MRHHA is a joint creation of Moose Cree First Nation, MoCreebec Eeyoud Council of the Cree Nation and the Town of Moosonee, as well as grassroots community members in Moose Factory and Moosonee. Our mission is to build a future with our shared past. This shared past is centred in the deep history and broad territory of the Mooso Sibi Illiliwak, and as well as the heritage and tradition of hospitality that has seen many diverse people welcomed into Moose Cree territory, friendships, and families for centuries. 
 
In 1973, Moose Cree First Nation leaders and members worked with other Moose Factory residents to plan a 300th anniversary celebration that had a big impact on our community. Following their example, we want to focus on More than 350 Years in the Making, to draw attention to the much deeper and broader history of our community and region, and to achieve community and economic development goals that integrate and impact education, heritage and language restoration, reconciliation, traditional and contemporary cultural and artistic development, health, etc.
 
The St. Thomas Restoration project is part of this and aims to restore the old church as a heritage venue serving the entire community. We want your input on this.

Part of our plans are to develop a Heritage Conservation plan, and to restore heritage buildings for the use of the community. In Moose Factory, we are working to restore St. Thomas Church as a heritage venue for the whole communituy. In Moosonee, we would like to restore the Revillon Frères building. There is much more to our heritage conservation plan than these two projects. Come and hear more, and give your input.
