The 1981 Shingwauk reunion was the first of a number of reunions of the the students, staff, clergy, and descents of those involved with the Shingwauk and Wawanosh Indian Residential Schools. The three day reunion saw 350-450 participants gather for homecoming and renewal.
The reunion was organized through the efforts of the Shingwauk Project and what would become the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA). The reunion was held at the former Shingwauk school in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The reunion aimed to help facilitate healing, communication, and a growing support network of survivors.
Shingwauk reunions were held again in 1991, 1996, 2000, 2002, and 2006.
