Indigenous Dialogues

A man stands on a pedestrian walkway surrounded by a group of people who are turned towards him listening. In the background, the brick wall of a building is visible along with two plaques.

Join us for a discussion on the Indigenous heritage of T’karonto and Turtle Island, and learn about the inherent rights and intimate relationships of First Nations peoples to these ecosystems. This land-based educational session will be led by a critical Indigenous perspective on the impact of colonialism.

Tour Information

This Heritage Toronto tour runs rain or shine and lasts approximately 90 minutes. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and consider bringing sunscreen and water to make your tour as enjoyable as possible.

This tour relies on a loudspeaker sound system. For over 25 years, our goal has been to share Toronto’s history and showcase its architecture, spaces, communities and cultures with as many people as possible. We continue this commitment by providing these accessible tours and ask you to support this work by making a donation when you register, or on the tour. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.

This tour will be led by Jeremie Caribou, a mature student in the Public Administration and Governance Program at First Nations Technical Institute in partnership with Toronto Metropolitan University. Jeremie is half Cree (Nehithew) and Mohawk, originally from Pukatawagan situated on the Missinnipi (now Churchill River) in northern Manitoba.

Registration Required

You will not be able to join a tour group if you have not registered ahead of time through our website (see below).

Donations Encouraged

If you share our passion for accessible and inclusive heritage programming, we invite you to make a donation with your free registration to help fund one of our next walks. Tour volunteers are equipped to accept both cash and contactless donations, and gifts of $20+ will receive a charitable tax receipt.

Tour Distance and Accessibility

The tour loops from start point, along the Humber River back to the same location. Please note that this walk takes place on unpaved and uneven surfaces along the Humber River. There will be several grade changes on the tour.

 

We ask for your help and patience in making the experience as safe as possible for everyone. All in-person events will follow Toronto Public Health guidelines and Heritage Toronto safety measures. Heritage Toronto tours take place outside. All participants are welcome and encouraged to wear a mask. Masks will be available upon request.
