Celebrating National Indigenous History MonthThe land along the Niagara River has been recognized as a spiritual place with rich ties to Indigenous history and culture for many generations. Oral tradition and archaeological evidence indicate that Indigenous peoples have lived along the Niagara River, from Fort Erie north to the shores of Lake Ontario in Niagara-on-the-Lake, for more than 13,000 years.
In recognition of National Indigenous Month, Niagara Parks is joining a number of local organizations in hosting special events, ceremonies and programming throughout the entire month of June. National Indigenous Month recognizes the historic contributions of Indigenous Peoples to the development of Canada and the strength of present-day Indigenous communities and their promise for the future. Join us for the opening ceremonies at the Landscape of Nations Commemorative Memorial in Queenston Heights Park to celebrate the start of Indigenous Month on June 1.
