The Gathering

Start the day in a good way. Experience a traditional First Nations Sunrise Ceremony lakeside 9 a.m. to noon. Enjoy onsite activities and vendors until 5 p.m. and learn more about Mississauga's Indigenous Community.

Stop by and see Chief Stacey LaForme of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation read one of his original works of poetry, have conversations on current Indigenous issues and watch a drum group with traditional dancers.

If you would like to take part in the Sunrise Ceremony, please meet at Bradley Museum to walk down to the lake as a group at 8:45 a.m.
