Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation is holding its first-ever annual celebration of treaties and allyship next month that will include performances by well-known Indigenous artists at the MCFN community centre.
The event is being billed as a community-to-community celebration of arts, culture and cuisine in celebration of its treaty relationship with the City of Oakville.
The event will be a thank-you to treaty holders from the City of Oakville to MCFN on Mar. 4 at the MCFN Community Centre.
The event will feature Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Susan Aglugark, with special performances by the Caribbean Steel Pan Drummers, Parang Singers and Hip-Hop dancers.
The celebration will be catered by renowned Mohawk Chef Tawnya Brant.
The event is free for MCFN community members to welcome Oakville treaty holders to the community and to thank them for their partnership.
The evening event will honour Treaty 22 in Oakville, which involves the central portion of the Credit River Reserve, along with its woods and waters.
It is being held by the Oakville Truth Project, a collaboration between the Oakville Community Foundation and MCFN.
