Lake to Longhouse Private Tour

Conservation Halton (Daily): Discover all that Crawford Lake has to offer with a private one-hour tour. The tour will start at the Longhouse Village, where you will learn how the village was discovered, how the longhouses were reconstructed and even practice a traditional method of fire-starting—no matches or lighters needed! Afterward, we will head down to the lake, where you will find out what makes the rare meromictic lake so unique and what secrets are being hidden at the bottom, and then learn a bit about the plants, animals and insects that live in and around the lake. (Guests are reminded to bring masks, which will need to be worn indoors and when physical distancing is a challenge.)

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
