There’s no better way to get a true taste of Canadian history than spending some time getting to know the stories of our country’s First Nations. There is no better place to do that than in Hamilton Halton Brant. Home to both the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, which is Canada’s largest First Nation, as well as the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, we are incredibly proud of the rich culture and heritage of our region’s first residents. Experience the pride at colourful summer Pow Wows, hands-on historic sites and reconstructed villages.
