From Here and Beyond: Stories of Katarokwi/Kingston

We are excited to announce that From Here and Beyond: Stories of Katarokwi/Kingston sound installations are now installed throughout the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning. Please take a moment in our halls to stop and listen, and if you have any questions either stop by Modern Fuel or email us at and we will be happy to tell you more about the project!

From Here and Beyond: Stories of Katarokwi/Kingston seeks to acknowledge and celebrate the historical and ongoing presence of Indigenous peoples in Katarokwi/Kingston through a series of public sound installations featuring the two traditional languages of these territories: Anishinaabemowin and Kanienke:ha.

The content of the installation is a collaboration between:

The Kingston Native Language Nest, a community of Indigenous language speakers and learners who are committed to the revitalization of Indigenous languages in the Katarokwi area.  

Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na (TTO), a grass roots charitable organization with the mandate to keep Kenhte’keha words and way of life alive as a community by promoting and revitalizing Kanyen’kehaka language and culture. TTO provides opportunities for acquisition, retention, practice, and promotion of Kanyen’kéha in Kenhtè:ke.

Kahswentha Indigenous Knowledge Initiative (KIKI), an Indigenous-led, consensus-based organization that seeks to support, celebrate, and integrate Indigenous knowledges at Queen’s University and in the broader community, with support from Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning, and Skeleton Park Arts Festival.
