WE’RE WORKING TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR THE WESLEY CASE FOR KIDS WALK, RUN, RIDE! – This year marks 30 years of helping local kids through the Wesley Case for Kids Walk, Run, Ride. Due to COVID-19, this is the second year we won’t be all together at Bayfront Park, but this won’t stop our enthusiasm and commitment to providing opportunities to children and youth in Hamilton. During June, everyone involved is asked to make a goal and walk, run, ride (or another physical or mental health activity), while following all public health guidelines. Please add your support by making a donation, joining our team, or sharing our team page! https://www.canadahelps.org/s/GGVVQ . Thank you!

The City of Hamilton is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Mississaugas and Anishinaabe First Nations, governed by
the Dish With One Spoon Treaty of 1701, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and protect the resources around the Great Lakes.
The dish is the land and all its bounty… There is just one dish, and we are all responsible to replenish it, so it doesn’t become empty.
Likewise, there is just one spoon, so that we each take what we need and then pass the spoon to the next person.
And it’s a spoon, not a knife, because we need to share and resolve our conflicts in a non-violent manner.
In 1764, the Treaty was extended to settlers as part of the Treaty of Niagara, and to this day we are all Treaty People living on Treaty Land.
We have a responsibility to understand the Treaty and to make sure everyone shares equally in our common wealth.
Hamilton is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) and we recognize that we must do more
to learn about the rich history of this land so we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and stewards.
