Restore Indigenous Street Names to Raise Awareness
Susan Blight, Hayden King

The Ogimaa Mikana (for Reclaiming / Renaming) Project is an effort to restore Anishinaabemowin place-names to the streets, avenues, roads, paths, and trails of Gichi Kiiwenging (Toronto) - transforming a landscape that often obscures or makes invisible the presence of Indigenous peoples. Starting with a small section of Queen St., the project expanded throughout downtown and beyond.
