Face2Face: Naawi-Oodena: A Town Hall Conversation

Saturday, Sep 24, 2022 at 7:00PM

Canadian Mennonite University

Naawi-Oodena, a landmark project on the site of the former Kapyong Barracks, aspires to be the pride of Winnipeg and the rest of Canada, showcasing the best in Indigenous business, design, arts and culture for generations to come. In 2021, the Treaty One Nations (T1N) named the property Naawi-Oodena, which means “centre of the heart and community” in the Anishinaabe language.

Located just down the road from the CMU campus, this development represents the largest multi-use project in modern Winnipeg history and the single largest, strategically located urban Indigenous economic zone in Canada. It has the potential to shape Winnipeg’s future urban growth, generate significant economic investment, and connect communities.

Join us for a presentation by Naawi-Oodena leadership, a look at their 3D model and app, and for conversation/Q&A with CMU President Cheryl Pauls moderating.
