Honouring the Land
The Town of Oakville resides on sacred treaty lands 14 and 22 and traditional territory of the Mississaugas, Neutral, Huron-Wendat and Haudenosaunee. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We acknowledge and thank the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for being stewards of this traditional territory.
