Building a welcoming gathering space for all


The Gathering Space recently opened at Niizhoziibean, formerly known as the South Point, at The Forks. Built by Indigenous leaders, The Gathering Space is a special, welcoming place for small ceremonies, concerts and celebrations, or as a beautiful place to visit and rest.

BeCause Radio spoke with Niigaan Sinclair, Indigenous Curator of The Forks Historical Site, to learn more about the importance of The Gathering Space, and how Indigenous and non-Indigenous visitors can learn from, and appreciate, the space.
