Join us for the opportunity to learn more about Treaties #14 and #22. Ages 14+

The Mississaugas of the Credit are the treaty partners of the Town of Oakville, and the current Town is located on Treaty #14 and Treaty #22 lands. This virtual session is an opportunity to learn more about the Mississaugas of the Credit and discover the stories of the treaties themselves during Treaties Recognition Week 2022.

Many may not realize that the Head of the Lake Treaty, Treaty 14, was negotiated immediately following the Toronto Purchase, nor are they aware that Treaty #22 is a trust. Join Darin Wybenga as he gives us more information about Treaties #14 and #22, their significance when negotiated as well as their aftermath. He will share his perspective of what Reconciliation means to him: recognizing and respecting the spirit of the Treaties, and working collaboratively on the path of Reconciliation. Time will be made available at the end of the session for a Q&A.

Speaker Bio: Prior to working with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Darin Wybenga was an educator in elementary schools in Southern Ontario. Specializing as a teacher of history and geography, he also served as a vice-principal and curriculum coordinator. In recent years, he has worked for the MCFN as the Traditional Knowledge and Land Use Coordinator for the Mississaugas of the Credit’s Dept. of Consultation and Accommodation. His work in the department primarily consists of educating project proponents about the history of the treaty lands, territory, and people of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
