In this special Burlington Heritage Week presentation, Elder Garry Sault talks about the Between the Lakes Treaty (Treaty 3) of which Burlington is a part. Treaty 3 covers more than three million acres across lakes Erie, Huron and Ontario. We're thrilled that this spellbinding storyteller and First Nations historian, who joined us virtually at the Burlington Literary Festival in November 2021, returns to BPL—this time in person! Limited seating; please register early.
Garry Sault is an Ojibway Elder from Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN). His people signed over twenty pre-confederation treaties with the Crown that cover most of the Golden Horseshoe. A veteran who served in the U.S. Navy, he resides with his family on the MCFN Reserve, where he has welcomed chiefs, premiers, environmentalists, and many more to their traditional territory.
