Journey of Knowledge

The First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples of Canada are recognized as the traditional stewards of the land. The municipality of The Town of The Blue Mountains is located within the boundary of Treaty 18 region of 1818 which is the traditional land of the Anishnaabek, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat-Wyandot-Wyandotte peoples.
