Six Nations is a vibrant Haudenosaunee community nestled along the Grand River in the heart of Southern Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe. We’re home to a rich history, a tradition of peace, an oral tradition that emphasizes inclusion, and the largest patch of pristine, untouched Carolinian forests left in Canada. Our Grand River Territory offers uniquely rich experience unavailable elsewhere in Canada.
We’re a beautiful clash of cultures— continuing our ceremonies and language an hour outside of Toronto, and between a handful of cities. Canoe the Grand River, hike the trails, explore the crafts and story of our people and our continued evolution since Europeans washed ashore hundreds of years ago.
We’re still here. And we invite you to come and find us.
