Week three, where to be? Well, at your local library for the Summer Reading Program, of course! This week we will learn some stories of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (Indigenous peoples of what most now commonly call North America). These tales are very diverse, just like the different Indigenous cultures and peoples to which they belong, so we hope you find many that you enjoy! To learn more, download this week’s related colouring sheet and check out this week’s reading list.
COUNTY OF HURON LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT STATEMENT
We acknowledge that the land we stand upon today is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples. We recognize the First Peoples’ continued stewardship of the land and water, and that this territory was subject to the Dish with One Spoon wampum, under which multiple nations agreed to care for the land and resources by the Great Lakes in peace.
We would also like to acknowledge and recognize the Upper Canada Treaties signed in regards to this land, which include Treaty #29 and Treaty #45 1/2, and our roles as treaty people, committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation, gratitude, and respect with all First Nation, Métis and Inuit people.
