Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA)

The CSAA is a survivor-led organization and its mission is to provide for the well-being of former students of the Shingwauk and Wawanosh Indian Residential Schools, their families, and their communities. The CSAA facilitates the ongoing development of a partnership with Algoma University and other site partners in fulfilling Chief Shingwauk’s vision of a Teaching Wigwam – the creation of a lodge or schoolhouse where his people and settlers could learn together on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabeg, specifically Garden River and Batchewana Nation as well as the Metis people.
