Thank you to TD Park People Grants for funding this event.

Come on a Wonder Wander frolic and enjoy the fabulous Queer nature of our more-than-human Relatives. From Two Spirit teachings of Changing Ones, to stories of Queer Ecologies, learn about our inseparable connection to the Land, and just how Queer it really is! This walk is for everyone but we would like to extend a special invitation to the Two Spirit , Indigiqueer and 2SLGBTTQIA+ community. Thank you to the City of Toronto's ShowLoveTO for resourcing this event.

1:00 PM
Our partners from Taiaiako'n Historical Preservation Society (THPS) have envisioned a ceremony to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day based on the theme of the Web of Life. Elders, Donna Powless (Snipe Clan, Cayuga of the Six Nations) and Catherine Tammaro Taǫmęˀšreˀ (Faithkeeper,Speckled Turtle Clan, Wyandot of Anderdon) will share Teachings on the key concept of Indigenous Knowledge regarding the interconnectedness of Natural World. Participants will experience the Teachings through the shared creation of a giant web stemming out from the Sacred Fire. Building on the web THPS will also ReStory Grandmother Spider, Right Relations and invite Spider back to the web.
