 "Two Row on the Grand"

This 7 day celebration is an extension of the celebrated Two Row Wampum Paddle on the Hudson River in the USA in 2013. Our three Canadian directors participated in this paddle and decided to bring the idea to Ontario... thus Two Row on the Grand.

Mission Statement 

Participant members of the 2013 Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign Paddle, working with representatives of Six Nations and surrounding communities will offer, to Canadians and to other indigenous people, a commemorative Grand River paddle of various durations with the Haudenosaunee from July 21 to July 28, 2017.   

This paddle, together with community events along the way, will engage today’s communities with the original values of the 1613 treaty – those of living alongside each other with the “Good Mind”, in peace, friendship and with a view to a respectful, sustainable future together.
