Burlington as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many FirstNations and the Metis. From the Anishinaabeg to the Haudenosaunee, and the Metis -our lands spanning from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment are steeped inlndigenous history.
The territory is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant,an agreement between the lroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nationsto peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is part of the TreatyLands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
