Misko Aki

Dear Allies,

We hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. We are writing to you today on behalf of the Misko Aki: Confluence of Cultures exhibit in Gravenhurst, Ontario, an extraordinary initiative that aims to foster understanding, knowledge, and appreciation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous visitors. This incredible exhibit will shed light on Indigenous history, culture, and sustainability values, marking an unprecedented milestone in the global promotion of cultural awareness.

The Misko Aki exhibit is more than a mere showcase of artifacts and stories; it represents a profound act of reconciliation and truth-telling. It will serve as a powerful platform for exposing the impact of innovative steam technology on the lives of local Indigenous peoples, addressing a crucial chapter of history that has long remained obscure. By revealing these untold narratives, we aspire to create a harmonious bridge between communities, cultivating empathy, respect, and appreciation for Indigenous cultures.

The significance of this project lies not only in its ground-breaking nature but also in its potential to set a precedent for similar endeavors worldwide. As the first of its kind, the Misko Aki exhibit has garnered widespread attention, positioning itself as a global exemplar for promoting intercultural understanding. By supporting this initiative, you have the unique opportunity to be part of a transformative movement that transcends borders and fosters a more inclusive and interconnected world.

However, we cannot accomplish this monumental task without the generous contributions of individuals like you. We are seeking financial support to ensure the success of the Misko Aki exhibit. Your donation will directly contribute to the development and implementation of interactive displays, educational programs, and community outreach initiatives. Together, we can empower both Indigenous and non-Indigenous visitors to embark on a journey of cultural exploration, deepening their understanding of history, traditions, and sustainability practices.

We invite you to join us in this noble endeavor and be recognized as a valuable partner in the realization of our shared vision. Any contribution, large or small, will make a significant impact on the success of the Misko Aki exhibit. In recognition of your generosity, we will prominently acknowledge your support within the exhibit space and provide exclusive benefits to express our deepest gratitude for your commitment.

All donations, regardless of the amount, are sincerely appreciated. Thank you for considering our request and for your ongoing dedication to Truth and Reconciliation. A special event will be held in September for those who make significant contributions. We eagerly anticipate welcoming you as a valued supporter of the Misko Aki: Confluence of Cultures exhibit.

With heartfelt appreciation,

John Currie

HIP Executive Director
