Aboriginal Awareness Day at Crawford Lake Sunday, June 18, 2017

Posted by on

Join us for Aboriginal Awareness Day at Crawford Lake this Sunday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and enjoy a fun filled day recognizing Canada’s Aboriginal past, present and future in the park’s picturesque, reconstructed Iroquoian village.

Crawford Lake’s Aboriginal Awareness Day festival will feature a variety of fun and exciting activities which will delight the whole family.

Visit with our special guest, Chief Top Leaf as he shares his traditional knowledge and challenges kids of all ages to look, listen and learn. Learn about the Indigenous history of Ontario through traditional teachings, storytelling and drumming with Wawashkesh Drums. Visitors can also try lacrosse and archery, or create a craft.

No day at Crawford Lake would be complete without a trip to the Visitors Center to explore the gift shop and perhaps find a special souvenir to help remember the day.

The Aboriginal Awareness Day festival runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday June 18. Regular park admission fees apply. Conservation Halton annual members admitted free of charge.
