Niagara At Large

By Elizabeth Chitty

A Niagara Giant Two Row Wampum March will take place on Saturday, February 2 at 11:00 a.m. in downtown St. Catharines, Ontario.

Native and non-native people will walk side-by-side, each “row” carrying a huge purple banner and a white banner. The banners represent the purple and white stripes of the Two Row Wampum belt, which was the symbolic record of the first agreement between indigenous people in North America and Europeans.

This action represents re-affirming the content of the treaty, which outlined a commitment to friendship, peace between peoples, and living in parallel as long as the grass is green, as long as the rivers flow downhill and as long as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
