We are located on the Haldimand Tract, traditional and unceded territory of the Anishnaabe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples.
This land is part of the dish with One Spoon Treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabe peoples and symbolizes the agreement to share, protect our resources and not to engage with conflict.
It encompasses 950,000 acres of land that was given to the Six Nations in 1784, 10 km on each side of the Grand River. The land was intended to be leased to settlers but in some circumstances was sold as land with full title.
Across all of the Haldimand Tract, there were very few outright legal sales of land and 90% of the leased land has never been paid for or paid to Six Nations.
