About

The City of Burlington, in collaboration with Indigenous residents and local communities, has installed Bimose Agaming | Walking along the Lake, an art walk featuring the work of First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists. Bimose Agaming is Anishinaabemowin, the traditional language of the treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

Throughout Spencer Smith Park, electrical boxes have been wrapped with the artwork of Indigenous artists from across Turtle Island. Visitors are encouraged to walk westwards to Lakeshore Road and Nelson Avenue, where an Orange Crosswalk has been installed to serve as a permanent reminder of Burlington’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. From here, visitors may continue to the Joseph Brant Museum to explore the sculpture Conversations and Stories by David General, an Oneida/Mohawk artist and member of the Six Nations of the Grand River.
