For thousands of years, Toronto has been the land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today it is still home and gathering place for many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. Join us for a unique bus tour to learn more about this history, and the many Indigenous communities who have left their mark on our city’s past and present and continue to shape its future. This is a scenic, fun and interactive opportunity to learn more about the evolving Indigenous history of the Toronto area while touring the city’s key areas. This is a 3-hour tour of pre-contact and historical landmarks illustrating the Indigenous presence in Toronto. The tour begins at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto around the corner from the University campus, and includes the following highlights: Lakeshore; High Park; Casa Loma; Don Valley and River; Tabor Hill; Toronto Islands; Rouge Hill; and Old Fort York. Further information on the tour and First Story is available at: www.ncct.on.ca.
