This summer’s event will be another symbolic enactment of our original Two Row Treaty – put in place over 500 years ago. Help us bring the treaty to life by paddling down the Grand River from Five Oaks to Port Maitland. We will paddle in “Two Rows” – one Indigenous row, and one settler/immigrant row – to demonstrate the simple concept of the Two Row Wampum Treaty. Our teachings say to paddle down the “river” of life on parallel paths, as friends helping each other, but not disrupting each other’s way of life. Educational events, traditional teachings, interactive dancing, storytelling and sharing circles will all be included as we camp along the river each night to rest.
