Be Kind, Work Hard and Make a Difference
Soyez gentil, Travaillez fort, Soyez la différence
Halton as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many First Nations and the Métis. From the Anishinaabe to the Attawandaron, the Haudenosaunee, and the Métis - these lands surrounding the Great Lakes are steeped in Indigenous history.
As we gather today on these treaty lands we have the responsibility to honour and respect the four directions, land, waters, plants, animals, ancestors that walked before us, and all the wonderful elements of creation that exist.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for sharing their traditional territory with us.
