The Wyandot Women in Anderdon Cemetery

Presenter: Mckelvey Kelly

On the shores of the Detroit River in present day Essex County, Ontario, the Wyandot of
Anderdon Cemetery remains the last preserved section of the nineteenth century Anderdon
Reserve. Mr. Kelly will situate the cemetery within the context of colonialism, women’s history,
and emotion work—a social phenomenon where emotional caretaking is used to heal
communities and highlight key cultural events. While histories of the Wyandots are plenty, there
has been little attention given to the Wyandot of Anderdon Nation and almost nothing on the
history of their sacred spaces and burial practices.
