Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Unity Gathering?

Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek is a community just under 200 km from Thunder Bay, up highway 11. You can see the exact location on a map by clicking here.

What does it cost?

Nothing! This is a free event.

What happens at a Unity Gathering?

These four days will be packed with events! We are still finalizing the agenda. It will be updated here when complete. We have confirmed a mini-powwow on the final day, a dedicated craft tent, and a demonstration language nest.

I want to come for multiple days! Where do I sleep?

Most people who enjoy the Unity Gathering sleep in a tent. Nokiiwin has some tents, or you can bring your own. There is also room on site for trailers/RVs, but there is no power. If you are physically unable to sleep in a tent, we have a very limited number of beds available and we may be able to accomodate you. Please indicate on your registration form and someone will contact you.

How do I get there?

You can drive, and there will be parking available on site. If you need help with transporation, please indicate that on your registration form, and someone will contact you. We may be able to help you. If you are looking for transportation help, please register AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Why does the registration form ask for my age?

We want to get a sense of how many children, youth, and elders we will have at the gathering to ensure that we have a good mix of activities. Some of our funders also want us to report on this demographic data. If you don't wish to give your actual age, feel free to put in a different age that still keeps you in the same "category".
