About this Event

”Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16 (NIV).

Shortly after settlers first arrived, the crown made a promise in the form of the Treaty of Niagara in 1764. The government agreed to respect Indigenous peoples and their cultures, to include Indigenous people as partners in decisions going forward, and to meet annually to review and celebrate the relationship between us. Decades later, Canada began systematically ignoring this treaty which lead to the Indian Act in 1876. This act fostered residential schools (which lasted for more than a century) and also fostered the 60’s scoop. While we cannot change the past, we can learn from it and we can change the future. We invite you to join us as we listen and learn from regional and national Indigenous leaders.

Keynote speakers are: Dr Cheryl Bear, Dr John Borrows, former Grand Chief Dr Matthew Coon Come, Dr. Alan Ojiig Corbiere, elder Albert Dumont, and musician/songwriter Jonathan Maracle.

"Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?" Amos 3:3 (NLT)
