A Bug's Life

In presenting the rehabilitation and site design plan for the Ayr Pit we would like to acknowledge that the site is located within the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishnawbe, and Haudenosaunee peoples. Today, Anishnawbe in south-western Ontario include the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Aamjiwnaang, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, and the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point. The Haudenosaunee peoples may be know as Six Nations and Iroquois, but together the nations make up what is known as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The Attawandaron peoples are made up of many distinct nations. Due to disease carried over during intense colonialization periods, many Attawandaron peoples were decimated and any remaining members were adopted to the Haudenosaunee peoples nation.
