Explore the history of the place we call Lions Valley Park from an Indigenous perspective by following the Moccasin Trail. This self-directed trail was developed in partnership with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and Indigenous community members and acknowledges the presence of the Indigenous Peoples who travelled through this region over the last 11,000 years.
The Moccasin Trails features a series of 13 plaques containing Indigenous stories, verses and information relating to the land, water and sky, giving everyone a deeper understanding of Indigenous heritage. In the traditional teachings of both the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse), this Inspiration Journey follows the elements of their Thanksgiving Address and traditional teachings in which we acknowledge and express our collective appreciation for what the Creation provides for us.
