Lake Nipissing Beading Project is a five-meter beaded replica of Lake Nipissing along with tributaries and joined waterways. This community collaborative project is meant to bring folks from Nipissing and Dokis communities together through a shared project, as well as other Turtle Island individuals and communities to bead a portion of the lake and its surrounding waterways.
