You are invited to hear Phil Monture of Six Nations tell the story of the Six Nations of Grand River and the Haldimand Treaty of 1784. The treaty covers lands for six miles on each side of the Grand River from Lake Erie to its source, including lands in the Kitchener/Waterloo region.

Monture's talk complements the Woodland Cultural Centre of Brantford's touring exhibit, ³From Each Side of the Grand,² which will be on display in the lobby of the Dana Porter Library from March 24-April 4.
