Restoring Indigenous stewardship to Tkaronto's ancient oak savannahs

We are a Circle of Elders, knowledge keepers, community members and leaders who have come together around our shared commitment to healing Indigenous lands and community here in Tkaronto. High Park’s oak savannahs are Dish With One Spoon Wampum lands, where our ancestors conducted ceremony, grew gardens, hunted and foraged for food and medicines.

Our members are from diverse Nations, including Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Wendat, Wyandot, MĂ©tis, Cree, Mi’gmaq, and Blackfoot Nations. We seek to fulfill our sacred and treaty responsibilities to care for the land.

We are working with the City of Toronto, Urban Forestry, the TRCA, the High Park Nature Centre, and other local organizations to create opportunities for Indigenous leadership in the restoration of High Park’s oak savannahs.
