For hundreds of years, our people gathered as many Nations in what is now called Victoria Park, Kitchener. We gathered in this area to meet under great peace and diplomacy to talk, trade, hunt and feast together. We gathered for ceremony. We came together bringing our children and those of marriageable age would find partners and create new, great kinships between our peoples. First Chonnonton, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron Nations found peace and a way forward under the great treaty of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum. We came together here under this long standing agreement that we conducted our relationship on this land.
We are a group of TwoSpirit IndigiQueer folx and queer/trans or LGBTQ+ settler accomplices gathering in the Great Peace to celebrate, learn, and thrive in our cultures. We represent several Nations living under the peace of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum, and the Two Row Wampum. Our summer programming has included Elder visits, medicine walks, food sovereignty gardens, arts workshops, and community feasts to name a few.
