The celebration will include the following kid- friendly activities!
· Planting native plants in the garden
· Arts and crafts
We acknowledge that we are situated upon the traditional territories of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. For over 10,000 years Indigenous peoples have lived in this area and we recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land.
High Park is located within “Dish With One Spoon” Territory. The “Dish with One Spoon” is a Wampum Belt Covenant between the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas to share and protect this land together by using only one spoon to eat from the Dish and ensuring the Dish is never empty. When we are in High Park, we are all part of this agreement and are also responsible for respectfully sharing and caring for this land and the animals who live here.
