In recognition of National Indigenous People’s Day, which falls on June 21 each year, the Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum will host Phil Monture, from Six Nations of the Grand River. He will tell the story of his community and the Haldimand Proclamation (Treaty) of 1784. The treaty covers lands for six miles on each side of the Grand River from Lake Erie to its source.
Monture, who has been researching this history for almost 40 years, will provide a historical overview of various land transactions and will discuss current Six Nations’ claims in Canada. The knowledge that he will share will strengthen our understanding of the territory that we live on here in Waterloo Region and increase our capacity to make connections between treaties and local geography and history.
