Did you learn about the Two Row Wampum in School? How about the Dish With One Spoon Wampum? Or what Wampums are in the first place? And why the words Ancestral, Traditional, Unceded are not equal under the law?

 

We'll learn all that & more by visiting three Toronto parks to walk:

 

• Dish With One Spoon Labyrinth

• Toronto's Largest Medicine Wheel which is also a Labyrinth

Artwork & motifs within each Labyrinth tells a story.

Sharing & hearing stories can become medicine.
