Witness the beauty and hear the stories of the Rare Ojibway Spirit Horses. We are proud to welcome our new herd of the rare and endangered Ojibwe Spirit Horses to this year’s Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival. These horses really share their own story on the sacred connection to the Ontario lands where they roamed free for thousands of years. You will have a chance to see these special little horses and hear their stories through the work of Artist Rhonda Snow with a painted series of stories she collected from the Elders across Turtle Island on their memories of this once wild horse.
