Students will learn how to use computer assisted design (CAD) software as a medium to explore concepts that include syllabic letter forms of the Ojiway/Oji-Cree indigenous languages and traditional practices.
In partnership with the Windigo First Nation communities and Nishnawbe Aski Nation the project will share the teachings with the first nation and non - indigenous communities in the province of Ontario through technology.

Learning about syllabics characters used in the Anishabe communities. The typography of each syllabic will be rendered in CAD ready for 3D printing.
Creating Oji-Cree syllabics forms using TinkerCad (free student friendly design program)
Students will learn about the forces on structures involved in making a traditional dreamcatchers .
Part 1 - Students will learn about the tools and procedures used in fabricating traditional nets.
Part 2 - Students will create a fishing needle by examining the dimensions and components of traditional needles. Students will use CAD to create some of these objects.
Part 3 - Students will 3D print the designs they have created and use these printed tools to create a fishing net.
