#ExperienceYR Trail Marker – The Blue Jay

Saturday was an important day in Whitchurch-Stouffville as we unveiled the latest #experienceyr trail marker by Indigenous artist Donald Chretien at the WS Museum.


The blue jay is known as Diindiisi in the Anishinaabe language and refers to the sound of their songs. So protective of family and territory, Diindiisi lifts up happy songs of the approaching spring with the intelligence of singing with other birds and mimicking their sounds.
