    Looking for a unique First Nations experience? Then register for the annual Two Row on the Grand Paddle in Southern Ontario. The “Two Row on the Grand” paddle is a symbolic renewal of the Two Row Wampum— the original peace-treaty between native and settler communities. This annual paddling trip allows participants, native and non-native, to build mutual respect and understanding of individual values and culture through friendship. Participants can paddle for one day or numerous days. In the evenings, there will be the opportunity to experience Iroquoian cultural teachings, powwow dancing, storytelling, environmental concerns, treaties and sharing circles. The event starts in Paris on July 20th, 2017 and ends at Port Maitland on Lake Erie July 27th. Participants are welcome to bring their own canoe/kayak... or rent a canoe/kayak. Registration is a must. For more information visit http://www.grandriverrafting.ca/two-row-grand-river-paddle
